On McCoy Tyner's first solo piano album in 16 years, the remarkable stylist really digs into six standards (including "Yesterdays," "In A Mellow Tone" and "Don't Blame Me") and four of his originals (highlighted by "You Taught My Heart To Sing"). Although somewhat typecast as John Coltrane's fiery pianist, Tyner at times on this record sounds romantic and in other spots hints a bit at Art Tatum. This is a rather special project from one of the finest jazz pianists of the past 35 years.
