Synopsis

Amazon.com
McCoy Tyner's two-fisted approach to the piano is so full and expansive that he almost sounds like a one-man jazz orchestra by himself. So it's no surprise, really, that he's turned out to be such an excellent big-band leader. The seven brasses, four reeds, and one percussionist who supplement Tyner's regular trio on Journey seem to take their cue from his dense, rhythmic attack on the keyboard. The harmonies are tightly packed, with the horns clustered at close intervals; the aggressive rhythm, as likely to reflect Latin influences as swing, is reinforced as much by the horns as by the piano, bass, and drums. --Geoffrey Himes
