At the time of these live performances (1974), when much of the jazz keyboard world had plugged in, at least part-time, McCoy Tyner's piano remained steadfastly grand. Of course Tyner (b. 1938) has long been known for the oceanic sound he draws from the grand piano, and he and the instrument at San Francisco's fondly-recalled Keystone Korner obviously had a good thing going. With not-quite-21-year-old reedman Azar Lawrence the co-featured soloist (he was a disciple of John Coltrane, whose spirit informs and illuminates much of these proceedings), the quintet sustains the urgency, surging power, and commanding beauty forever associated with the classic Coltrane quartet--and its one-time pianist McCoy Tyner.

with Azar Lawrence, Joony Booth, Wilby Fletcher, Guilherme Franco
