McCoy Tyner :: Makin’ Out (1974)

Via the pianist's 1974 live album, Atlantis, this track is an absolute monster. Notably backed by co-conspirators, saxophonist Azar Lawrence, bassist Juini Booth, percussionist Guilherme Francothe and drummer Wilby Flethcer, the piece's  formidable tone is immediately set, moving along under its own estimable weight for the next 13 minutes. Tyner drives the quintet from the onset, and along with Francothe, paints the walls of the club with broad swathes of color and atmosphere. Menacing, muscular and free, it's quite the ride.
