McCoy Tyner - Trident

This record is interesting on a few fronts...it marks McCoy's first record of trio recordings since 1964 (about 11 years prior), the line-up smokes (McCoy, Ron Carter and Elvin Jones) and half of the tracks feature McCoy on either harpsichord or celeste.

Elvin destroys the traps on the aptly-named track Elvin (Sir) Jones as well as on a couple of breakdowns on today's track...
