Song of the New World

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
This set gave pianist McCoy Tyner his first opportunity to write music for a larger group that included brass, flutes, and -- on two of the five songs -- a string section. The powerful pianist is in fine form and the main soloist throughout although there are spots for trumpeter Virgil Jones and the flute of Sonny Fortune. Most memorable is the title cut and a reworking of "Afro Blue."
