It's About Time Review

by Scott Yanow

Pianist McCoy Tyner's matchup with veteran altoist Jackie McLean is reasonably enjoyable but less memorable than one might expect. Actually McLean is only on four of the six selections and trumpeter Jon Faddis (who appears on two cuts) sometimes steals the spotlight. Tyner and McLean are accompanied by either Ron Carter or Marcus Miller on bass, drummer Al Foster and sometimes percussionist Steve Thornton. The pianist wrote five of the six selections (including "You Taught My Heart To Sing") but none of the musicians sounds all that inspired.
