Song For My Father

(Anna Fisher and Jawge Hughes)
written by Horace Silver arranged by Hughes /Fisher
Horace Silver's classic Jazz Standard, "Song For My Father" spotlighting the sensuous oboe in a unique Island Version by way of the United States Virgin Islands, a place dear to both Anna and Jawge.
When Anna discovered she'd taught music to Jawge's cousins on the tiny island of St. john they decided to tribute their late fathers with this beautiful song based on the folk songs of Horace's fathers roots in Cape Verde.
The best part was getting to hang out with the legendary Silver in his home, eateries and concert venues more than a few times!
