Further Explorations by the Horace Silver Quintet is an album by jazz pianist Horace Silver released on the Blue Note label in 1958 featuring performances by Silver with Art Farmer, Clifford Jordan, Teddy Kotick, and Louis Hayes. The Japanese editions feature the same artwork shown here, but have blue as dominant colour instead of yellow.[2] The Allmusic review by Steve Leggett awarded the album 4 stars and states "Further Explorations is a solid, even striking outing, and if it isn't maybe quite as flashy as some of its predecessors, it is no less substantive and revealing".[3]
