McCoy Tyner - Time for Tyner

Man, what a prolific time this was for McCoy Tyner...in the space of a few months he laid down the sessions that would become The Real McCoy, Time for Tyner, Tender Moments and Expansions - all with a ton of original compositions.

This record gets cited most often for McCoy's take on the standard "The Surrey With the Fringe on Top"...for my money, the track you want is McCoy's own "May Street", a nice up-tempo modal romp with some furious interplay between he and vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson.
