Not all of the voices are inner in this McCoy Tyner album. The prodigious pianist devised choral backgrounds and horn orchestrations for original compositions that have the continuity of a suite. The album displays early evidence of the ability as a big band arranger that was to bring Tyner praise, recognition, and awards in the 1990s. With a superb rhythm section and the high-energy soloing of trumpeter Jon Faddis, saxophonist Alex Foster, trombonist Charles Stephens, and Tyner himself, the album is a rounded and stimulating statement of Tyner's progress and accomplishments in the late Seventies. Bassist Ron Carter, guitarist Earl Klugh, and drummers Jack DeJohnette and Eric Gravatt sustain rhythmic force of an intensity to match Tyner's.
