amazing Cape Verdean singer, instrumentalist and composer Carmen Souza has written the lyrics (in Creole language) to Horace Silver's great tune: "Canção pa nha pai"

"father's coming back home after another hard sea trip"

"Ess ê um canção pa nha pai qui passá tud sê vida na mar
Na bord daquês navio
El ta trabalha viaja ta tchora sodade di volta
Ta luta pam vivê

Ma sempre el ta voltá
Chei d' ligria pa dam
Dipôs de tont temp na mar
Nha pai
Ess ê um canção pa exalta sê exempl sê herança pa mim
Força de vontade, carinh
Um vida tud ta luta ta viaja ta conquista tud mund
Note ta parecê sem fim

Ma sempre el ta voltá
Chei d'ligria pa dam
Depôs de tont temp na mar
Nha pai"

@andre Starke As a youngster my Uncle Roger always kept me close to him. So there were plenty of times, I myself got the opportunity to be around some of the Greatest such as : Ravi Coletrain, (John Coletrains son) Kurtis Fuller, and one of the Baddest Hammond B 3 Organist, Capt. Jack McDuff. And not to forget Stanley Turrintine


@Anthony Humphries Your uncle Roger was a hell of a drummer! God bless you both!

Beautiful. Miles has mindfulness, Coltrane has chaos but Horace harnesses the happiness of a day in the sunshine with memories of loved ones and the feeling of being alive.
