- The Analog Vault // Essential Listening -

After his revered tenure within John Coltrane’s “classic quartet”, the great McCoy Tyner went on to have a long and fruitful solo career in his own right. While much of the American jazz pianist’s discography as a bandleader has garnered acclaim, his tremendous 1973 album on Blue Note has somehow been unfairly neglected. Extensions is an excellent and expansive record inspired by the heritage and culture of Africa.

Key to the album's magic is undoubtedly the unique collaboration between Tyner and his successor in John Coltrane’s band - Alice Coltrane. The combination of Tyner’s keys and Coltrane’s harp offers an astral jazz wonder, prone to lengthy sojourns Joined by alto saxophonist Gary Bartz, tenor saxophonist Wayne Shorter, bassist Ron Carter, drummer Elvin Jones - Extensions is a skillful and subliminal showcase of Tyner’s modal originals. - The Analog Vault
