"In preparing these hi def remasters, we were very conscientious about maintaining the feel of the original releases while adding a previously unattainable transparency and depth. It now sounds like you've set up your chaise lounge right in the middle of Rudy Van Gelder's studio!" - Blue Note President, Don Was.
Blowin' The Blues Away is widely considered one of Horace Silver's definitive albums. In full stride, Silver is joined by his classic quintet, which includes trumpeter Blue Mitchell, tenor saxophonist Junior Cook, bassist Eugene Taylor and drummer Louis Hayes. It features some of Silver's finest compositions including "Peace" and "Sister Sadie." Absolutely riveting.
Reviews...a lovely album, full of fire and brimstone.... We're going to be playing this one for a long time. - Down Beat
