in the early 1950's and went on to lead his own group for the next 50 years. Many of the historically 
important jazz musicians apprenticed as a member of the Horace Silver Quintet. Horace Silver 
composed thousands of compositions, many are considered to be masterpieces in the jazz repertoire. 
His own unique style of piano playing influenced most of the jazz pianists that followed.
