McCoy Tyner

This is a particularly well-rounded McCoy Tyner solo set. The masterful pianist performs four Coltrane tunes (including "After The Rain" and two versions of "Crescent"), five of his own originals (highlighted by "Tribute To Lady Day" and "Effendi"), Bud Powell's classic "Bouncin' With Bud," Dexter Gordon's "Tivoli" and three veteran standards. McCoy Tyner always sounds in prime form and these diverse songs bring out the best in his passionate style. Highly recommended. ~ Scott Yanow
