It’s an interesting recording for a number of reasons. It sounds as though it was recorded with the microphones somewhat far from the strings of the instrument, more like the way many classical piano recordings are made. There is a lot of room sound. […]
McCoy Tyner always sounds in prime form and these diverse songs bring out the best in his passionate style. Highly recommended. […]
