McCoy Tyner – Song of the New World

$40.00 Inc. GST

Released in 1973, McCoy Tyner’s “Song of the New World” marked a departure for the acclaimed pianist. This album wasn’t just a showcase for his virtuosity, but a chance for him to compose for a larger ensemble. Backed by a full band including brass, flutes, and even a string section on some tracks, Tyner explores new sonic territory. The album features a mix of his own compositions, like the powerful title track, and a reimagining of Mongo Santamaria’s “Afro Blue.” Soloists like Sonny Fortune on flute and sax add their own voices to the mix, but Tyner remains the driving force, his piano weaving intricate melodies and propelling the music forward. “Song of the New World” is a captivating listen, showcasing both Tyner’s composing talents and his mastery of the piano within a rich and dynamic orchestral setting.
