ABSTRACT
The article presents a review of the music album "Jazz McCoy Tyner Land of Giants." Pianist McCoy Tyner contributed greatly to the album with John Coltrane in the early '60s, and his own albums since then. To say that Land Of Giants is one of his most satisfying recordings is a heavy compliment. It reunites the pianist with vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson, with whom he has worked occasionally, going back to Time for Tyner in 1969.
