At 80-years-old, legendary drummer Louis Hayes makes his Blue Note records debut as a bandleader with “Serenade for Horace,” a loving tribute to his mentor and friend, the great pianist, composer and bandleader Horace Silver. Hayes was 19 years old when he moved to New York City in 1956 and joined Silver’s Quintet, putting his stamp on timeless Blue Note recordings like “Señor Blues,” “Sister Sadie,” and “Blowin’ the Blues Away.” Hayes went on to become one of the most recorded drummers in jazz history, contributing to iconic records by John Coltrane, Kenny Burrell, Freddie Hubbard, Hank Mobley, Tommy Flanagan, Cecil Taylor, McCoy Tyner, Ray Brown, Joe Henderson, and Dexter Gordon.
