On this album, pianist McCoy Tyner shines almost unlike any other star the jazz world has seen. His unrelenting output from the late 1960s shows why he is one of the best ever to touch the ivories. Along with Coltrane bandmate Elvin Jones, Tyner and company soar over this extended blues. Joe Henderson pushes the band just as hard as Elvin does, and the results are nothing short of remarkable. This group recorded more and the magic doesn't stop here, but this album is a must for anyone serious about McCoy Tyner and the extension of the Coltrane sound after 1965.
