AllMusic Review by

This two-Lp sampler from 1981 has music from five of pianist McCoy Tyner's six Impulse albums including three songs from his fairly rare 1963 Newport concert. In addition to trio performances, Tyner welcomes such guests as trumpeters Thad Jones and Clark Terry, altoists Frank Strozier and Charlie Mariano and tenor-saxophonist John Gilmore to some selections. A strong overview of Tyner's Impulse years, this twofer has been largely superceded by the pianist's CD releases.
