I'm a big fan of Horace Silver and own most of his albums. But I wasnt' even aware of the "Silver 'N" series until this recent round of Japanese reissues showed up on Amazon. I was skeptical of the series, as all these albums were recorded in the mid-70's (the dark ages of modern jazz). I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the arrangements are incredibly sophisticated and fresh sounding, even today. If I had to compare this to something, it reminds me of some of the late 60's Blue Note recordings by Lee Morgan and Stanley Turrentine where they did some really nice ensemble work with original compositions. This is every bit as good or better, and any fan of classic modern jazz will like this. There are no electric guitars, "groovy" sounding synths or other affectations of the 70's - just pure, thoughtfully constructed acoustic jazz compositions by one of the legends of modern bop. The recording & remastering quality is excellent as well; the CD sounds like it could have been recorded last year, rather than in 1976. It's a bit pricey and seems to come in an out of stock on Amazon, as it was pressed in Japan. But if you're a fan of Horace Silver, it's definitely worth picking up!

This was always my least favorite entry in the Silver 'n series of the late 70s (Silver 'n Brass holding down the pole position). The combination of Ron Carter's chubby bass with Bill Green's chubby bass saxophone overdubs made for a sludgy sound. I'm not sure that the Blue Note vinyl pressing of 1976 didn't also contribute to this. But this new Toshiba transfer is a revelation. Bill Green stills moans and barks over there in the left channel, but the music now has a spacefulness and clarity to it that I really love.

What stands out from the removed vantage point of 2013 are a number of things. First, the quality of the 8 compositions is, not unexpectedly, unsurpassed. Except for the opener, Keep On Gettin' Up, these are neither funky tunes in the familiar Horace mold or standard-issue hard bop. Horace's harmonic palette had reached its zenith in the 70s and it shows remarkably on this disc. Most of the tunes are up-tempo Latin numbers told over a bass ostinato before moving into swing bridges. One, the rich ballad Slow Down, is an absolute clinic in the application of post-bop harmonies, full of the 6/9 chords and altered 13ths that Horace loves. (Full disclosure: the performer is still on-planet as of this writing, so I'm sticking with the present tense). Also, pay particular attention to Horace's comping. Sometimes I wish that the horn soloists could be stripped away from the recording just so I can hear his romping and inventive supporting pianistics.

Composed of 2 side-long suites, Silver 'n Wood features his regular touring front end of Tom Harrell on Trumpet and Bob Berg on tenor together with Ron Carter and Al Foster (both of whom didn't tour with Horace). Wade Marcus orchestrated the brass and reed overdubs according to Horace's exacting charts, doing a wonderful job. The record is long at about 48 minutes but immensely rewarding in all aspects.

This is the second installment in Horace Silver's Silver N' series. I was ecstatic when I found out the entire series was going to being released on CD after being recorded over 30 years ago. Unfortunately to any fans interested, the CD's are Japan imports and can go out of stock quickly and not come back into stock for months. So I would suggest getting these quickly as well as some other Japan imports of other artists such as Cannonball Adderley, Art Blakey, Elvin Jones and etc. As for the music it is fantastic and typical Horace Silver. This time its the regular quintet with extra woodwind instruments. It includes five different kinds of saxophone players ranging from soprano sax to the rarely used bass sax. The arrangements were made by conductor Wade Marcus and they work out wonderfully. The album is broken up into two 4 part suites. The first suite entitled, "The Tranquilizer Suite" is my favorite. I love the opening track, "Keep on Gettin' up". It grabs your attention right away with the typical funky sound Silver plays with. The final piece from the first suite is called, "Perseverance and Endurance". This number is probably the most soulful tune on the album and sounds like its from the 70's. The second suite is titled, "The Process of Creation Suite". My favorites from that suite is the latin tinged "Activation" which reminds me of a Silver classic called "The Cape Verdean Blues" and the other tune that really caught my attention was "Assimilation" which is performed at a blistering pace. In my opinion this is the second best album from the Silver N' series. Pick this up along with the other 4 albums in this series before its too late!
