Legendary drummer Louis Hayes will release his Blue Note debut on May 26 with Serenade for Horace, a tribute to the great pianist and bandleader Horace Silver. It was as a member of Silver’s Quintet from 1956-1959 that Hayes was first introduced to the jazz world as the driving force on classic Blue Note albums including 6 Pieces of Silver, Further Explorations, and The Stylings of Silver, putting his stamp on timeless tracks like “Señor Blues,” “Sister Sadie,” and “Blowin’ the Blues Away.”

Serenade for Horace was co-produced by Blue Note President Don Was and bassist Dezron Douglas with the eminent Maxine Gordon acting as executive producer. The album features a top notch ensemble with Douglas, vibraphonist Steve Nelson, pianist David Bryant, tenor saxophonist Abraham Burton, and trumpeter Josh Evans, as well as a special guest appearance by vocalist Gregory Porter on “Song for My Father.”
