A cool Jazz album from a great jazz pianist.,
This review is from: Nights of Ballads & Blues (Audio CD)
One of my favorite jazz albums because it is so cool. McCoy tyner who at that time was more widely known for being and integral part of the John Coltrane Quartet proved that he definetley had the goods to make albums under his own name. Nights of ballads and blues was Tyners third solo album. The album is just that an selection of blues and ballad. Tyner along with Steve davis and Lex Humphries play a group of Jazz standards. The outcome while not breathtaking is still beautiful to listen to. The beauty in listening to this Cd is hearing how the 'melodically inventive' Tyner and the rest of his trio sound together. Not a note feels wasted, but each song sounds unique. A real treat.

Surely it deserves a 5 star rating then?
