McCoy Tyner - Sahara
|Status:||ITEM CAN SHIP IMMEDIATELY|
McCoy Tyner released Sahara in 1972. The album features saxophonist Sonny Fortune, bassist Calvin Hill and drummer Alphonse Mouzon. After the death of John Coltrane, his longtime pianist McCoy Tyner was in something of a musical quandary.
With Sahara, Tyner found the precise perfect "middle ground" on which to stand, more structured than late Coltrane, but exploding with a ferocity and freedom of sound that made the album simply one of the greatest jazz recordings of the decade. None of the other members of his quartet ever sounded so inspired, so liberated as they do here. Sahara is an astonishingly good record and belongs in every jazz fan's collection.
