Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
One of the better McCoy Tyner records on Milestone, this live set from San Francisco features the masterful pianist playing solo on "Naima" and leading a strong sextet with George Adams on tenor, flute, and soprano; Joe Ford on alto and flute; bassist Charles Fambrough; drummer Woody "Sonship" Theus; and percussionist Guilherme Franco on four of his originals. There are remakes quite different from the originals of "Fly with the Wind" and "The Greeting" and two newer pieces, including the atmospheric "Hand in Hand." An excellent example of McCoy Tyner's playing in the 1970s.

    Flying out of this world!!!

    Overall, this album is terrific. The only real dissapointment I have is the sound quality (live recording made back in the 70s...). Tyner does a wonderful job on Coltrane's tune, "Naima". "Hand in Hand" has a nice traditional sound to it, using both George Adams and Joe Ford on flute. But most of all, I love "Fly with the Wind". I think it's much better than the 1976 version he did with his big band, and the way he arranged his composition for this performance was haunting and exhilirating. Plus, the tenor solo was wild on that tune!

    Saxaphone Heaven (a rest haven for pleasant sounds)

    I bought this to sample and make hip-hop beats but instead all I heard was the thrilling riffs from alto saxaphonist Joe Ford.
