McCoy Tyner - December 1972 - Tokyo - Sahara 'live'

The next few days' worth of posts are going to be live "bootleg" recordings from various McCoy Tyner dates throughout the 70s...If you have any live McCoy shows, from any era, and are willing to share, please leave a comment (and preferably a download link). Thanks.

This show was an FM broadcast from Tokyo and featured the line-up and material from McCoy's auspicious debut for Milestone, Sahara, which I posted about several months ago here.

The line-up for this show featured McCoy on piano and koto, Sonny Fortune on flute, soprano and alto saxes, Alphonse Mouzon on drums and percussion and Calvin Hill on bass and percussion.

The download below is a ZIP file containing two unedited MP3s as well as CD cover and tray art.

MP3 One:
Valley Of Life > Ebony Queen

MP3 Two:
Message From The Nile > Naima
