John Coltrane's profound influence on McCoy Tyner began when the pianist joined Coltrane's quartet in 1960. It has never ended. When Coltrane hired him, Tyner was a developing young Philadelphia bebop pianist with a good six-months' track record in the Jazztet. When Tyner left Coltrane in 1965, he was a musician of expansiveness and depth and one of the most famous pianists in jazz. The five solo pieces on this 1972 album constitute a tribute to the man he credits with opening his spirit and his mind to his own possibilities. It includes Coltrane's "Naima" and a version of "My Favorite Things" in which he surpasses even his own celebrated solo on the famous Coltrane recording of the song.
