In 1973, jazz was branching out; the Mahavishnu Orchestra recorded "Between Nothingness and Eternity," Chick Corea made "Hymn of the Seventh Galaxy," and McCoy Tyner teamed up with producer Orrin Keepnews for "Song of the New World." There's plenty of great music here, plus a vintage '70s vibe, on Tyner's first foray into orchestral jazz.
Mongo Santamaria's "Afro Blue" begins with an exotic intro of flute, conga, thumb piano, and bells, and the full band entrance is strong and majestic. After a duet of dueling flutes Tyner plays a whirlwind solo over Alphonse Mouzon's storm-like drumming. The band chimes in occasionally, but Tyner sails over it all. "Some Day" is a relief from what has come before. Tyner's melodies can be refreshingly simple and direct, and here he channels a bit of Richard Rodgers' charm, in a tune unusually structured around Jooney Booth's upright bass solo. The entire ensemble stays in the background, and Booth is joined by Sonny Fortune's haunting flute comments.
