McCoy Tyner's piano is instantly recognizable, he is one of a handful of pianists since Bud Powell and Art Tatum that I will listen to anytime. On this CD there are some beautiful solo piano pieces, which are the highlight of the recording for me. The pianist is playing with authority and passion. There are some cuts with John Scofield on guitar that I liked less well. On these tracks McCoy is holding back, of necessity because of the guitar up front, but I just don't think John Scofield has the range or depth on his instrument to play with McCoy. These tracks sound forced, Scofield's more funky sound and his more limited ability doesn't go so well with McCoy's deeper brand of playing.
But overall this is a very mellow and listenable CD, and I have been playing it often.

Got a number of additional McCoy Tyner albums recently as he is one of my favorite jazz musicians and there are a lot of albums of his to choose from.

This one particularly struck me as a fine piece of work. When I first became a Tyner fan I listened to mostly albums that were very long intense piano-centric pieces such as you find on Atlantis and Sama Layuca.

I have since come to realize that he has a large body of work in which he plays a more traditional jazz style that is not so intensely "Tyneresque" but still is imbued with a solid dose of his unique jazz style.

His blues classic "Blues on the Corner" is done very nicely on this album and the sax solo is excellent, George Adams I believe is the sax player.

One other commenter was not impressed with John Scofield's guitar work on this album. Well, since it didn't stand out enough for me to really recall that there was a guitarist on this album, I would tend to agree. And that is even though I am a big Scofield fan in general.

McCoy truly dispalys his dexterity on the kebord with this album. The entire CD is almost an understated solo performance, with an interesting tenor sax accompaniment on one of the tracks.
Great for listening and relaxation.
