The Jody Grind is a 1966 recording by the Horace Silver Quintet, led by jazz pianist Horace Silver. Released the following year on his lifetime label Blue Note, it peaked No. 8 of the Billboard jazz album charts.[1] As one of his “groove-centered” recordings it would “wind up as possibly the most challenging”, Steve Huey writes on Allmusic, and gave “one of the most underappreciated” of Silver's albums 4½ stars.[2]
