  • Recorded in 1973 at the Montreux Jazz Festival, ENLIGHTENMENT is one of McCoy Tyner's finest recordings (which, considering the quality of his catalogue, is quite a feat). Backed by drummer Alphonse Mouzon, bassist Juney Booth, and saxophonist Azar Lawrence, Tyner puts on a performance that incorporates elements of post-bop, modal, free jazz, and other styles (the influence of John Coltrane, Tyner's former bandleader, is evident too).
  • The concert is presented in its entirety, a full 70 minutes, including the "Enlightenment Suite," which is divided into three parts, "Presence," and the 24-minute "Walk Spirit, Talk Spirit." A kinetic, telepathic vibe can be heard evolving between these players, but this is very much Tyner's show: his trademark chordings and dazzling runs are in full flower. Adventurous, stunning, and quite beautiful, ENLIGHTENMENT is a must-have for fans of Tyner and late-'60s/early-'70s jazz.
