I don’t have hard numbers to back me, but I’d wager that far fewer songs were written about fathers than mothers. But that’s OK, as long as we have classics like Horace Silver’s “Song for My Father.” It’s the title track to the pianist’s excellent 1964 Blue Note release, and you just have to love that bossa nova swing!
So happy Father’s Day to all my fellow dads out there!
