Wikipedia : This day (June 18, 2014), in New Rochelle, New York, died Horace Ward Martin Tavares Silva a.k.a. Horace Silver, an American jazz pianist and composer.

The Official Website of Horace Silver : The pianist could have just as easily been describing his own life. For more than fifty years, Silver has simply written some of the most enduring tunes in jazz while performing them in a distinctively personal style.

@allmusic : The hard bop style that Silver pioneered in the ’50s is now dominant, played not only by holdovers from an earlier generation, but also by fuzzy-cheeked musicians who had yet to be born when the music fell out of critical favor in the ’60s and ’70s.

@last.fm : He is known for his distinctive humorous and funky playing style, and for his pioneering contributions to hard bop. Silver was influenced by a wide range of musical styles, notably gospel music, African music, and Latin American music.
