Jazz Has a Sense of Humor is the final studio album by jazzpianistHorace Silver released on the Verve label in 1998 featuring performances by Silver with Ryan Kisor, Jimmy Greene, John Webber, and Willie Jones III. The Allmusic review by Michael G. Nastos awarded the album 4 stars and states "In this set of nine originals, the Horace Silver touch is clearly evident: happy, strong melodies; groovin' beats; Silver's deft, deliberate, bluesy piano comping and boppin' leads... his tunefully familiar, head-noddin' original funk is a vital as ever, and sounds pretty fresh compared to some of the trite neo-bop being reprocessed this past decade. Silver's light, spare, soulful style is a sound for sore ears, one that has a universal, timeless appeal, crossing generational and commercial barriers. This is well-played music, a specialty Silver has envisioned and realized through the bulk of his career. Highly recommended".
