edit Life
Born in the small town of Venusia in the border region between Apulia and Lucania (Basilicata), Horace was the son of a freed slave , who owned a small farm in Venusia, and later moved to Rome to work as a coactor (a middleman between buyers and sellers at auctions, receiving 1% of the purchase price from each for his services). The elder Horace was able to spend considerable money on his son's education, accompanying him first to Rome for his primary education, and then sending him to Athens to study Greek and philosophy . The poet later expressed his gratitude in a tribute to his father: If my character is flawed by a few minor faults, but is otherwise decent and moral, if you can point out only a few scattered blemishes on an otherwise immaculate surface, if no one can accuse me of greed, or of prurience, or of profligacy, if I live a virtuous life, free of defilement (pardon, for a moment, my self-praise), and if I am to my friends a good friend, my father deserves all the credit... As it is now, he deserves from me unstinting gratitude and praise. I could never be ashamed of such a father, nor do I feel any need, as many people do, to apologize for being a freedman's son.

2. Horace (65-8 B.C.)
A biography of the ancient Roman poet and satirist horace.
HORACE Sprung from a simple freedman of Venusia, and educated at Rome and Athens, HORACE Satires . At last he was put on the high road to wealth and honour by Virgil Odes and Epistles ; he was, in his latter days, recognized and honoured by the friendship of Augustus himself. His metrical form, like much of his substance, is borrowed from the Greeks, and though the charm and flexibility of the originals are reduced, a new Roman dignity and depth of sound appear which make him, especially in the Odes , a perfect blend of Greece and Rome. The hexameter, which he uses for the Satires and the more or less satiric Epistles , is an advance in ease on the hexameter of Lucretius , but does not attain, or even aim at, the perfect music of Virgil. In the lyrics, where form was more important, Horace brought it to such perfection that, as with the hexameter of Virgil, further development was decay. In the matter, as in the form of his poetry, one is first and most struck by the perfect balance and union of the different strains which had gone to the making of his life and character. There is the man of simple country tastes, educated and transformed, but not spoilt, by the urbanity of Rome. There is the Roman ring of the earlier poets, softened, but not extinguished, by the glamour and triumphs of the Empire. Above all, the rival contemporary philosophies of Greece, the creed of the Stoics and of Epicurus, find in Horace an unexampled reconciliation. He had studied in Athens and served with Rome.

    Bronze medallion of Horace from the reign of Constantine. zSB(3,3) Definition: Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus) was a Roman poet (December 8, 65 - November 27, 8 B.C.) favored by Emperor Augustus to write a poem for the special public entertainment event known as the Secular Games that Augustus put on in 17 B.C. Horace provides autobiographical information in his poetry. We learn that he was the son of a freedman who worked as a coactor argentarius 'auction broker' and publicanus 'tax collector'. Another source for his life is Suetonius who calls Horace a native of Venusium. He adds that Horace was short and fat, liked lascivious pictures, and spent most of his time in retirement on his farm. Horace received an education at Rome under L. Orbilius Pupillus, and then in Athens, at the

    Horace (65-8BC) [Quintus Horacius Flaccus] Latin Poet, Satirist
    Quintus Horatius Flaccus, was born on November 27, 8 BC. The renowned Roman Satirist and Lyrist was known in the English world as Horace. His father was a manumitted slave, however, he saved enough to see to Horace's education. His lyrical writings ('satires and lampoons') were to eventually come to the attention of Virgil and, in turn, to one of the ministers of Octavianus. With the recognition of those on high and gifts bestowed (one of which was a farm in the Sabinian Hills above Rome), Horace was able to lead a life of leisure and luxury; and, eventually, was to acquire the position of the poet laureate. His poetry supplies more phrases which have become proverbial than the rest of Latin literature put together.

    Horace Silver
    "I found Brubeck's work interesting until I heard Tatum, Horace Silver, and Oscar Peterson within a period of six weeks. But when I heard Horace, now that was a thing which turned me around and finally fixed my idea of piano playing." Cecil Taylor Horace Ward Martin Tavares Silver . As a child he was exposed to Cape Verdean folk music performed by his father, who was of Portugese descent. He began studying saxophone and piano in high school, when his influences were blues singers such as Memphis Slim, and boogie-woogie and bop pianists, especially Bud Powell and Thelonious Monk . In 1950 Stan Getz made an appearance in Hartford, Connecticut, with Silver's piano trio, and subsequently engaged the group to tour regularly with him. Silver remained with Getz for a year. By 1951 Silver had developed sufficient confidence to move to New York, where he performed as a freelance with such established professionals as Coleman Hawkins, Lester Young, Oscar Pettiford, and Art Blakey . In 1952 he was engaged by Lou Donaldson for a recording session with Blue Note; this led to his own first recordings as a leader and to an exclusive relationship with Blue Note for the next 28 years. From 1953 to 1955 he played in a cooperative band called the Jazz Messengers which he led with Blakey. By 1956, however, he was performing and recording solely as the leader of his own quintet, while Blakey continued as leader of the Jazz Messengers.

    14. HORACE SILVER: Retrospective (Blue Note)
    Review by Steve Marshall.
    HORACE SILVER: Retrospective (Blue Note)
    Looking back over time from the late '90s, there are few musicians who have made a greater impact on jazz than Horace Silver. The hard bop style he helped pioneer in the '50s became a major force in jazz; not only among jazz veterans, but also by younger musicians as well. Blue Note's new 4CD Retrospective covers most of the pianist's output for the label, and there are few tracks to be found that don't measure up. The 45 tracks run in roughly chronological order, covering the years from 1952 to 1978. Disc one begins with three tracks from the Horace Silver Trio album, all featuring the master, Art Blakey on drums. It's a shame they didn't include more of these early tracks. Even after all these years, they sound fabulous. In 1953, Silver and Blakey formed the Jazz Messengers. Their first album, Horace Silver and the Jazz Messengers, was one of the true cornerstones in the development of hard bop. Several of the tunes penned by Silver for that record, such as "Doodlin'" and the band's first hit, "The Preacher" became jazz classics. Silver's next big hit came with "Senor Blues," appearing here in both instrumental and vocal versions. Of the four CDs, disc two is the best. There aren't any bad tracks here at all. It kicks off with three in a row from 1959's Blowin' the Blues Awaythe joyous "Sister Sadie," the dulcet "Peace" (arguably Silver's finest melody), and the album's brisk title track. "Strollin'," with its loping melody, remains one of his most attractive themes; while "Nica's Dream" combines a minor Latin feel with straight ahead swing. Both tracks are standards now. "Filthy McNasty" combines funky blues with a great beat in a live setting. The tracks on disc two truly exemplify one of the finest bands of the era.

    Horace was a Roman poet who lived from 65 to 8 B.C. We call him Horace in English, but to his contemporaries and fellow countrymen he was Quintus Horatius Flaccus. Among his poetry are four books of odes (known in Latin as "carmina"), containing just over one hundred individual poems (103, to be exact). In one of these odes (3.30) Horace bragged that his poetry would live as long as Vestal Virgins climbed the Capitoline Hill in Rome. You won't find any Vestal Virgins in Rome today, but Horace's odes are still read and enjoyed, more than 2000 years after he wrote them. The odes cover a variety of themes. You'll find invitations to dinner, praises of wine, women, and song, descriptions of holiday celebrations, patriotic exhortations, philosophical musings, hymns, and much more. In The Twilight of the Idols , the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche wrote about the odes of Horace: Up to the present I have not obtained from any poet the same artistic delight as was given me from the first by a Horatian ode. In certain languages that which is obtained here cannot even be hoped for. The mosaic of words in which every word, by sound, by position and by meaning, diffuses its force right, left and over the whole, that minimum in the compass and number of signs, that maximum thus realized in their energy,all that is Roman, and if you will believe me, it is noble par excellence. All other poetry becomes somewhat too popular in comparison with it - mere sentimental loquacity.

The Epistle to the Pisos, or Art of Poetry , has been assigned by various authorities to the period between 24 and 7 B.C. Professor Nettleship (in his Lectures and Essays ) believes it to have been written between 24 and 20 B.C. Its interest and value are considerably enhanced in view of the fact that it is, in Professor Saintsbury's words, "the only complete example of literary criticism that we have from any Roman." It is significant that the greater part of its subject-matter is concerned with the drama. While it has been clearly substantiated that Horace drew upon a non-extant treatise by Neoptolemus of Parium, an Alexandrian critic of uncertain date, the fact that Horace made use of and molded the ideas of his predecessor is important. The Art of Poetry is on the whole a somewhat arbitrary manual; the greatest importance is there attached to the purely formal side of writing; the dramatist must adhere closely to the five acts, the chorus, and son on; proportion, good sense, decorum, cannot be neglected. Of the practical value of the work before the Renaissance, it is impossible to know; of its influence since that time, it can only be said that it was as widespread as that of

    20. Horace - LoveToKnow 1911
    horace QUINTUS HORATIUS FLACCUS (658 B.C.), the famous Roman poet, was born on the 8th of December 65 B.C. at Venusia, on the borders of Lucania and Apulia (Sat. ii. 1.34).
    From LoveToKnow 1911
    HORACE [QUINTUS HORATIUS FLACCUS] (65-8 B.C.), the famous Roman poet, was born on the 8th of December 65 B.C. at Venusia , on the borders of Lucania and Apulia Sat. ii. 1.34). The town, originally a colony of veterans, appears to have long maintained its military traditions, and Horace was early imbued with a profound respect for the indomitable valour and industry of the Italian soldier. It would seem, however, that the poet was not brought up in the town itself, at least he did not attend the town school ( Sat. i. 6.72) and was much in the neighbouring country, of which, though he was but a child when he left it, he retained always a vivid and affectionate memory. The mountains near and far, the little villages on the hillsides, the woods, the roaring Aufidus, the mossy spring of Bandusia, after which he named another spring on his Sabine farm - these scenes were always dear to him and are frequently mentioned in his poetry (e.g. Carm. iii. 4 and 30, iv. 9). We may thus trace some of the germs of his poetical inspiration, as well as of his moral sympathies, to the early years which he spent near Venusia. But the most important moral influence of his youth was the training and example of his father, of whose worth, affectionate solicitude and homely wisdom Horace has given a most pleasing and life-like picture ( Sat.
