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.

Land of Giants is an album by McCoy Tyner released on the Telarc label in 2003. It was recorded in December 2002 and features performances of Tyner with Bobby Hutcherson, Charnett Moffett, and Eric Harland.

Joined by Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, Charnett Moffett on bass, and Eric Harland on drums, Tyner expands the jazz vernacular by adding seven new original compositions-plus the Tyneresque "If I Were A Bell" and "In A Mellowtone. What makes this recording special is the perfect empathy between Tyner and Hutcherson, who continually pick up where the other has left off, their respective ringing tones and sustains blending into one another. It finds all the principals at the top of their game. McCoy Tyner has consistently been a provocative musician, before-and, fortunately, after- John Coltrane. This straight-ahead recording shines bright with the holy trinity of jazz-Swing, Swing, Swing. Track Listing: Serra Do Mar; December; Steppin. Personnel: McCoy Tyner.

Land of Giants, recorded after the quartet won raves at a 2002 London engagement, reunites Tyner with a fellow giant of forward-thinking '60s jazz, vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson, on a set of seven fresh Tyner originals – an impressive mix of Latin numbers, modal burners and a Coltrane-esque blues – plus three standards. McCoy Tyner’s been so good and so prolific for so long that his excellence seems a given.
