Allmusic 4/5 stars[1]

In Pursuit of the 27th Man is an album by jazz pianist Horace Silver released on the Blue Note label in 1973, featuring performances by Silver with David Friedman, Randy Brecker, Michael Brecker, Bob Cranshaw, and Mickey Roker.[2] The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4 stars and states "a very unusual sound for a Horace Silver set. But no matter what the instrumentation, the style is pure Silver, hard-driving and melodic hard bop with a strong dose of funky soul".[3]
