Philly's Real McCoy

I picked up McCoy Tyner's "Song For My Lady" yesterday. Great album. The LP starts out with "Native Song", which has a great groove, Mtume on percussion adds a lot of flavor (as does his addition on the last track "Essense"). The title track sounds like what would've happened if Coltrane's classic quartet stayed together and started playing like Coltrane's second quartet ('65-67). "A Silent Tear" is a beautifully, soulful piano solo.

All in all, I'd say it was a great way to start off my Sunday morning.
