I finally got this cd...
DARRYL | Washington, DC | 01/09/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For years and years i have been looking for this cd for two songs, LOVE SURROUNDS US EVERYWHERE, and I'LL BE AROUND. I LOVE MISS PHYLLIS HYMAN! i finally heard who the artist was and looked on here and found it. This cd is very nice with its 6 songs, but they are all very nice and they are kinda long so it doesnt even seem like its only 6 songs. hannibal is good to groove to, senor carlos is good too. i dont know much about mcoy tyner but this is a great find. listen to the samples, u will see... and you phyllis hyman fans add this to your collection, its a keeper. thanks [...]!"
My favorite McCoy Tyner Group
William E Donoghue | Healdsburg CA USA | 11/30/2007

"I saw a similar edition of this group at Seattle's Jazz Alley and it was magic. John Blake's violin added a lot to the session and Charles Fambrough provided a strong anchor. Get it."
HOT Tribute to Phyllis Hyman from McCoy Tyner
Beverly Praiswater | 04/26/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This work is hot R&B and wild jazz. The opening cut is clearly the beginning of a tribute to the talent of the late, great Phyllis Hyman. McCoy is burning on the ivories to accompany her vocal. True musical inspiration! Basically this work is McCoy's tribute to the jazz/R&B industry of the early 1980's. That being said anyone who loved the Philly Sound of the early 80's will surely enjoy this work.

For those who enjoy Ms. Hyman's voice, please don't miss the songs "Love Surrounds Us Everywhere", "I'll Be Around" and "In Search Of My Heart". The latter song is proof of her beautiful, rare talent. She is showcased magnificently here. It is probably one of her finest vocals ever.

The song "Senor Carlos" features Carlos Santana on guitar. Inside this song McCoy is inspired with passion. Stanley Clarke plays acoustic bass and electric bass on this album. His solos prove his artistry.

This work was sadly overlooked originally because it was a departure from McCoy's usual jazz format and because it was considered commercial. Many of the jazz greats in the industry saw the beauty in Phyllis Hyman's vocals and showcased her in their contributions. It is these kinds of brilliant sounds from some of our greatest in the industry that unfortunately slip through the cracks. Consider yourself lucky if you can find a copy somewhere."
