Recorded on the heels of a spectacular live date at London's Barbican Hall on July 6, 2002, Land of Giants features an all-star quartet led by '60s icon pianist McCoy Tyner. Showcasing a solid mix of Tyner originals and jazz standards, the group also includes vibist Bobby Hutcherson, bassist Charnett Moffett, and drummer Eric Harland. While the work here is by no means as provocative as the stuff Hutcherson and Tyner produced in their heydays, it nonetheless proves them to be utter masters of the straight-ahead modern jazz idiom and should appeal to longtime fans.

However, Tyner has done so many albums, if you explore enough you can find quite a bit of stylistic diversity in his work. Land of Giants is one example
