McCoy Tyner - Song of the New World

Bringing new meaning to the term, "big band" this record has brass, woodwind, strings, as well as McCoy and features a work out of the Mongo Santamaria track Afro Blue, which Trane and subsequently McCoy helped become a modern standard...

McCoy revisited Afro Blue throughout his career with varying line-ups. In fact, I saw him open his set a couple of years back in a trio setting with Pharoah Sanders and Charnett Moffett with the track, which warmed up the crowd and performers very nicely...
