McCoy Tyner and the Latin All-Stars is an adventurous and much anticipated release from McCoy Tyner, one of modern jazz's most respected and imitated pianists. This spirited set, built upon Afro-Cuban rhythms, places Tyner among the masters in the Latin-Jazz tradition.

While the sounds and rhythms of Latin America are constantly being rediscovered and reinvented by new generations of fans and musicians, Tyner has always understood the links between cultures. "As a teenager I was involved in African culture," Tyner recalls of his early years in Philadelphia. "I grew up in an atmosphere that wanted to connect with aspects of my roots."

On McCoy Tynor and the Latin All-Stars, the celebrated pianist's skills as an improviser fit completely within the Afro-Cuban grooves to create a stunningly elegant record. The playing is based on collaboration, which is the essence of Latin-Jazz. With a sound both organic and innovative, and an improvisational vocabulary entirely his own, McCoy Tyner again demonstrates a bold, authoritative approach that is sure to receive much deserved critical acclaim.
