Flavorful McCoy Tyner!
Frank Bock | 07/16/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"McCoy plays harpsichord and celeste!! Yeah, you heard it. On Celestial Chant, McCoy opens up the song on harpsicord with Elvin Jones's rumbling drums before giving way to his piano and then a fine solo by Ron Carter on bass. Next McCoy moves to celeste on Once I Loved which is also excellent, and then on to Elvin (Sir) Jones. You know who is bad on that one! haha! And we also have a roaring trio version of Impressions, which is almost as impressive (in intensity and quality) as the John Coltrane original which you can hear on various sets such as The Village Vanguard Box and whatnot. This album is excellent, and has a ton of flavor amidst all the fusion activity of the 1970's. Definitely highly recommended. Elvin and McCoy are just powerful, while Ron Carter is just jazz..."
Three of the best at their best

"Not only does this recording feature three of the most influential musicians of their respective instruments, but it also features them in top form. Tyner and Jones sound as good here as any of their monster recordings with Coltrane, and Ron Carter is in his usual top-bass-player-in-jazz form (check out his solo on "impressions"!). The trio lets it fly for most of the recording, and ending on a more mellow note with a nice rendition of Monk's "ruby, my dear". May be my only knock on the recording is its length: 41:00, in that McCoy is someone I enjoy listening to for extended periods. Oh well, have the cd changer ready."
My desert island McCoy album!

"This is, for me, McCoy Tyner's greatest ever recording. A pianist of his power and conceptual brilliance is best suited for the purity of a trio, and with Ron Carter and Elvin Jones, plus the superb selection of tunes, the album is a wonder. It also contains my favourite McCoy original, "Land of the Lonely". It doesn't get any better than this. A timeless classic. Piano players will be shaking their heads in disbelief."
