Finding this album on CD in New York,after having looked for it for years in Europe,is one of my great shopping moments.It was in the days before Amazon. I find it difficult to think of any piece of music,in any musical genre,with a more sensational beginning than the title track. The fact that this is a live performance makes it even more remarkable. This is Tyner in his Coltrane mold draining every ounce of energy from himself and his ensemble. Chillout music it is not, although with a covering of the song "My One and Only Love" the mood does relax. The ability of this man to create brilliantly simple memorable melodies never ceases to amaze me. His level of musicianship is simply staggering!
