Silver 'n Voices is an album by jazz pianist Horace Silver released on the Blue Note label in 1976 featuring performances by Silver with Tom Harrell, Bob Berg, Ron Carter, and Al Foster, with an overdubbed choir directed by Alan Copeland featuring Monica Mancini, Avery Sommers, Joyce Copeland, Richard Page, and Dale Verdugo.[2] The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 2 stars and states "The self-help lyrics get a bit cloying and the voices simply weigh down the music but there are some good solos along the way".[3]
