    The best! Thanks!

    I just LOVE the sound of McCoy Tyner's piano chords against the soprano sax. They just sound so good together!
    - non-stop swing from the band.

    Yes Tyner is really great: those voicings are so inviting. Elvin is just volcanic. He's mixed too high here. Coltrane has such a yearning tone: you can really hear him searching or questing. I think its a major reasons why musicians respond to him: we hear in him the seeker in ourselves.

    This woman does a really great job breaking down Tyner's solo on the studio version:

    YEAH McCoy Tyner is really exceptional in a time period filled with exceptional pianists.

    That's really a good observation when you think about who was playing piano at the time they were all good
