Silver 'n Wood is an album by jazz pianist Horace Silver released on the Blue Note label in 1975 featuring performances by Silver with Tom Harrell, Bob Berg, Ron Carter and Al Foster with an overdubbed horn section conducted by Wade Marcus featuring Buddy Collette, Fred Jackson, Jr., Jerome Richardson, Lanny Morgan, Jack Nimitz, Bill Green, Garnett Brown, and Frank Rosolino.[3]


The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 3 stars and states "The two sidelong works ("The Tranquilizer Suite" and "The Process of Creation Suite") are not all that memorable but the music overall (helped out by strong solos) is typical Silver hard bop".[4]
