This autobiography traces Silver's contributions as pianist, producer, bandleader, composer and lyricist and as an innovator whose musical influences include the blues as well as gospel, Latin, symphonic, Broadway shows and folk music. He recalls the jazz scene over six decades, where he toured with Stan Getz, then arrived in New York to team with top talents on club dates, recording sessions and radio broadcasts. In 1952, he began a 28-year association with Blue Note Records and then ran Silveto, his own independent record label, during the 1980s. Silver has vivid recall of every musician he ever encountered, which provides great anecdotal material, as well as solid insights.
