AllMusic Review by

This Atlantic LP was released in the mid-'70s and it features acoustic music (all but one selection in a trio format) by four of the most popular and influential jazz pianists. The two McCoy Tyner numbers ("Lazy Bird" and "In Your Own Sweet Way") are from 1960 and were previously unreleased. Otherwise the Keith Jarrett and Chick Corea selections are from a couple of their mid-'60s albums while Herbie Hancock's two selections are from a 1969 Ron Carter date. Overall this is an excellent sampler of modern mainstream jazz piano that is long out-of-print.
