Default Horace Silver any1?

For some weird reason, I'm listening to old jazz artists atm and after listening to 'song for my father' (although i did listen to it a few years back..but that was a long while ago), i feel like getting more.
Any horace silver fans here?

song for my father and Horace Silver and The Jazz Messengers are the only ones I've listened to completely. Both are really great. The only other album i have is Cape Verdean Blues which has been a great listen so far.
How good are his other stuff?
I've heard good stuff about finger poppin and Blowin the Blues Away.
Need to get em soon and check it out..hopefully.(depends on my mood )

Most of his records are consistently good.He did a ton for the Bluenote label.I say check out Tokyo Blues and Finger Poppin next.Serenade To A Soul Sister and The Jody Grind after that.
There`s a couple with the Jazz Messengers from the mid `50s that are essential:Art Blakey Quintet`s One Night At Birdland and the Jazz Messengers` At The Cafe Bohemia Vols 1 and 2.

Horace is amazing. I dig Sister Sadie. The best, IMO. Really hard bop is kick ass, not just Horace.
