William E Donoghue | 10/04/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is great small group McCoy, with two reed players, bass, drums and percussionist. McCoy was intense and melodic in these days, brimming with energy. The horns and percussionist provide variety and color which is lacking in his current trio group. The music has an exotic, Middle Eastern color or flavoring at times which is very appealing."

"Focal Point has always been my favorite McCoy Tyner album. I will remember when it first came out, I was fascinated by the music and, on my first flush of success, I too it with me when I bought my first stereo components. The detailed interplay between the piano, bass, drums and bongos(!) was amazing to listen to. I tested several speakers before I found the AR-2s which would allow me to hear each intstrument separately and hear how each instrumentalist responded to the other. What more can you ask of a jazz recording? It's all about communicating and when you can hear each instrument separately and see how well they communicate, it's a thrill. I don't think any other recording has sounded the same to me since. This CD is the standard against which I measure all others. I have had the opportunity to see McCoy Tyner's trio twice in the past six months and he still thrills me from the first chord. Don't miss him when he and Aaron Scott (drums) and Avery Sharpe (bass and electric bass) come your way. You will never hear piano the same way again. Buy this recording; you will never regret it."
