Horace Parlan

Horace Parlan (born January 19, 1931 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) is an American hard bop and post-bop piano player.

Noted for his contributions to the classic Charles Mingus recordings Mingus Ah Um and Blues & Roots, Parlan often bridges the divide between the chordal sophistication of the bop idiom and the African-American “roots.”
