Joe Henderson signed with Verve right after this album was recorded, and released the album that became his major breakthrough "Lush Life". For contractual reasons this album was turned into a McCoy album after the recording, but is conceptually and in terms of repertoire much closer than "Lush Life" to what Joe Henderson would perform/sound like live. The 2 best tracks on the album, in my humble opinion, are Joe's stablemate and original "Recorda-Me", and especially "Ask Me Now" - a Monk composition that Joe had truly made his own. At this stage, 5-6 years after he started performing the tune (he first recorded it trio in 1985 w. Ron Carter & Al Foster on "State Of The Tenor" (Blue Note), and then later in 1987 in another live trio version w. Charlie Haden & Al Foster ("An Evening With Joe Henderson, Charlie Haden, Al Foster" Red Records). The version on this album is the more fully "matured" take, while perhaps not as packed with the drama of startling innovation as on the trio version from 1987. However, it is still a masterpiece, and a perfect introduction to one of the greatest musicians/improvisers/saxophonists that ever lived: Joe Henderson

Wow! The first time I played this cd I couldn't believe my ears! What could possibly be better than bringing together jazz greats like McCoy Tyner, Joe Henderson, Ron Carter, and Al Foster? Now...add the production and engineering team listed on the liner notes. Wow!

"Recorda Me" is uptempo and smoldering, a perfect opener that grants each artist a solo in the spotlight. The intense energy and power of "What Is This Thing Called Love?" is over the top! "Beautiful Love" goes to many different places...highs, lows, upbeat, and then verrrry slow & cool. The finale is truly the coupe de gras!! Like the finest in life, "Home" is the ultimate on this cd!

Clearly the recording studio was on fire for this project! In addition, the quality of the recording sound is amazing! You feel as if you are right there leaning on McCoy's piano. This is for those who love innovative, spirited, and sophisticated jazz...and a must for any McCoy Tyner connoisseur! Enjoy, enjoy!

This album is fantastic. A crystal clear recording (you can heard the pads on Joe Henderson's sax as they hit the body of the sax) coupled with wonderful musicianship. One of McCoy's finest albums. Definitely on my desert island disc list.

This is somewhat of a jazz standards style of album from McCoy Tyner, unlike the epic instrumental work on many of his albums that comes across like a stream of waves crashing onto the beach.

I like this album. A lot. With songs more of the standards type it is somewhat more austere than much of Tyner's work but there nevertheless is a lot of rich solo play from Henderson and Tyner. I wasn't listening too closely to the bass and drums but with Ron Carter and Al Foster, not surprisingly the playing from all members of the group is excellent.

Joe Henderson gets a beautiful tone out of his instrument even while playing difficult solo passages.

Inside the cover, Chesky Records touts the fact that they are especially careful in the recording techniques they use to achieve the best possible sound. The sound quality is indeed outstanding so their boasts appear to be justified.

One reviewer commented that this was not the SACD version. It appears that when you do a review here for either one of the versions the review shows up on both. So, you may or may not be clicked on the SACD version. I see from the cover of mine that it is indeed the SACD version. It is probably worth getting that version so long as you can get one for $14 or so like you can when I bought mine.

Just a warning, this item is NOT the SACD. There seems to be some confusion as the SACD is mentioned in the reviews. This is the standard (redbook) CD - Chesky JD51.
