TV Show Bumpers

Horace Silver entered some “funk” into jazz with his compositions. I remember having his early records from the 50s when I was a kid. Then people like Lee Morgan added to that with songs like “Sidewinder” etc. It actually was the basis for a lot of what you hear today in contemporary jazz but had so much soul and connection to the roots of jazz and blues in it and the great thing it was still acoustic music. On TV “bumpers” is a term used for music played to go in and out of commercial breaks to keep the audience engaged. I used all my experience on the show from Swing to Be Bop , latin , funk all of it and I have 100s of “Bumpers” like this one. I think I will go through them and put something together what a playing field I had on that show to just do anything I wanted a very wide pallet.
