Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
This double CD originally recorded for King in 1989 finds the great pianist McCoy Tyner stretching out with bassist Avery Sharpe and drummer Aaron Scott on five standards, a pair of songs apiece by John Coltrane and Thelonious Monk, and two of his own originals.
