The pianist, of course, always had his own fleet and rich way with ballads, in spite of the galvanizing marathon solos he became known for on live dates and his later experimental recordings with Coltrane. His ballad style is even touched with a bit of sentimentality, which thankfully is kept in check by a bevy of tasteful lines.

Nights of Ballads & Blues is the third album by the jazz pianist McCoy Tyner, released on the Impulse! label in 1963. It features performances by Tyner with Steve Davis and Lex Humphries.

Tyner is obviously a very talented Jazz musician, and this album showcases that talent clearly. If you like Jazz Ballads and Blues, this is for you. A spectacular album that will get a lot of play on my turntable for years to come. One person found this helpful. I bought McCoy Tyners "Nights of Ballads and Blues" way back in 1966. It was my introduction to jazz and this disc went to just about every party I went to for several years, it was the perfect accompanyment to seeing in the wee small hours of the morning.
