5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Jazz/Fusion album 11 Oct. 1999
By N. A. Loughran - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This was really the first McCoy Tyner album that I ever listened to and the power this man puts into his music is frightening. Quartal comping and massive altered pentatonics abound on this album which I would recommend to anyone wanting to make the transition from jazz funk to real jazz.
Perhaps the only downside is that the string melody on the first track is repeated too many times and there should be more space given to McCoy and Laws but hey it's still a great album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mahavishnu meets McCoy 15 Oct. 2004
By drumsprogjazz - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is a great album for any jazz-rock fan who is transitioning from Billy's Mahavishnu albums to his solo work. It has a more traditional jazz flavor with elements of jazz fusion. McCoy Tyner's piano work is outstanding and the additions of Laws and Carter make this album a classic. Cobham's drum work is absolutely incredible. This is a nice way to get some of the jazz fusion people into listening to some more traditional fare. The combination of the two styles of jazz really does mesh well. The listener will not be sorry for this purchase!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning 4 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is McCoy with intense strings providing color, Billy Cobham playing all out on drums, and great Hubert Laws flute solos. This is a high energy album which is also very beautiful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feel of nature 8 April 2009
By Phil Kasiecki - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This CD by the living legend has a "nature" feel to it with most of the tracks, which had me wondering how much my favorite artist, Keiko Matsui, has been influenced by him since a lot of her music is like that. The title cut starts it out beautifully and with a great beat to it, but every track has a similar feel yet is also a little different. The alternate takes of "Beyond the Sun" and "Rolem" add a nice touch as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and a half 6 April 2012
By Bill Your 'Free Form FM Print DJ - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I always engage in self correction thinking of McCoy Tyner, my first reaction is to think he is John Coltrane's former piano player. Sure he was, but if my mom was Ms. Apple County 1965, what would that say about her now? Just about nothing. It was a long, long time ago.

And Tyner has built a resume of creativity that has nothing to do with 'Trane, ABC Impulse! or free jazz. He really stopped playing free after he left his band in late 1965, opting to reinterpret jazz standards, and write his own music for all kinds of formats.

Fly With The Wind may be some of Tyner's most ambitious work, using a large ensemble, including strings, woodwinds--tons of flute--and amazing drum work by Billy Cobham, who can'r seem to resist keeping the pulse by doing one fill more amazing than the last, then ten more after that.

Cobham's busy style is an asset here, as this music is huge in its sound, Tyner surrounding himself with the amazing orchestrations, which provide a mammoth bullet-proof casing for him to play in. The sound is so big, I really thought this recording had to be recorded in the 1990's or after in digital. It's actual 1976 release date only makes the aural depth and size that much more masterfull.

Tyner's playing here is interesting. He comps well and plays solos that are surprisingly short, given that Fly With The Wind is his gig. You won't get those extended solos like on those records with John........what was his last name? Even Tyner's runs are more economical here; perhaps he feels it better to make short, bold strokes to compliment the massive sound wave enclosing him.

Whatever the case, this is brilliant orchestral jazz, celestial, amazingly composed--and improvised. In whatever form you love McCoy Tyner, you gotta get Fly With The Wind *
