McCoy Tyner - Enlightenment

This album contains the complete performance of McCoy's set at the 1973 Montreux Jazz Festival.

My god, it rocks.

The line-up is Azar Lawrence (on tenor and soprano saxes), Juney Booth on bass and drummer Alphonse Mouzon, a powerhouse in his own right.

I sort of wish this record was out of print so I could offer up to you the entire thing...you'll have to settle for one cut and then hunt the rest down yourself. It is more than worth paying for...70 minutes of music across 6 tracks...
