Inception

LP (Item 352230) Impulse, 1962 — Condition: Near Mint-
Gatefold
Also available
McCoy Tyner — Inception ... CD 6.99

A very early date as a leader by McCoy Tyner – cut at a time when he was making big waves in the John Coltrane Quartet, but also sounding plenty darn great on his own! The group here's a trio – with Coltrane associates Art Davis on bass and Elvin Jones on drums – and the warm familiarity of the players is clear from the very first notes of the set. There's a lighter, more lyrical – and possibly more sentimental – style going on here – one that echoes piano work of earlier generations, but which also shows plenty of signs of the growing modalism in Tyner's lines – especially on the striking original tracks "Sunset", "Effendi", "Inception", and "Blues For Gwen".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(70s black label pressing.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Milestone, 1980. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
McCoy Tyner's a hell of a piano player on his own, but in the post-Coltrane years he also developed an amazing talent for picking sidemen too – as you'll hear in this very unique set! The record features four different quartets – hence the title – each of which features a core ... LP, Vinyl record album

Expansions
Blue Note, Late 60s. Very Good
A really mindblowing session from McCoy Tyner – perfectly titled "Expansions" to showcase the change in his style at the time! The record is one of Tyner's first larger group efforts – and is a brilliant example of the expansion of his talents in the post-Coltrane years ... LP, Vinyl record album

Song Of The New World
Milestone, 1973. Very Good
Soaring brilliance from McCoy Tyner – one of his first large group outings, and an effort undertaken with key help from William Fischer! There's a sense of soaring freedom here that's very much like Tyner's smaller group albums of the time – but Fischer tunes it with a broader sense of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sahara
Milestone, 1972. Very Good+
Pretty darn nice stuff from McCoy Tyner, from a period when he was opening up to the soul jazz spiritualism that was around him – a movement that was clearly directly inspired by his work with Coltrane, but which also helped to shape his playing, and return the favor of influence. The group ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1963. Near Mint- Gatefold
The title says it all – as McCoy works his way through a nicely restrained trio set of material that features bass by Steve Davis and drums by Lex Humphries. The tracks are perhaps not as spiritual and far-reaching as Tyner's later work – but they're handled with that richly expressive ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1963/1964. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A pretty nice 2LP set that collects together McCoy's early trio sides for Impulse – pulled from albums that were issued under his own name, and mostly featuring Coltrane-based lineups that either include Jimmy Garrison or Art Davis on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. The set features 2 tunes ... LP, Vinyl record album

If you read these pages often enough, you'll know that we're big fans of recordings made by American expatriot players while living in Europe during the 60's.

One of the first big moments of Albert Ayler's work in the jazz mainstream – and a record that doesn't dim his greatness at all from the earlier sides recorded for ESP!
