Silver 'n Percussion is an album by jazz pianist Horace Silver released on the Blue Note label in 1977.[3]


The Allmusic review by Michael G. Nastos awarded the album 3 stars and states "Silver's best work came prior to this recording, but this may be his best work of the 1970s. Even though it's a little short, at under 40 minutes, it's nonetheless recommended and, perhaps for the leader, worth a revisit".[4]
