If a feeling of deja vu permeates Jazz Has a Sense of Humor, more’s the joy. Since no one can write an infectious bop melody, play dancing counterpoint piano lines, or arrange for a swinging quintet with Horace Silver’s panache, a project that recalls the 1950s glory days of this under-celebrated perennial is to be welcomed with open arms. Here’s proof that the father of hard bop is still quite a mother.
