2008 European CD reissue.
Orrin’s commentary (from his new liner notes): “Although I had been very much impressed by his work with [John Coltrane], listening to [McCoy Tyner] in New York clubs in the years that followed made me aware of how remarkably he was developing. He was, and still remains, one of the most powerful pianists I have ever heard; many years ago having learned to merge that strength with a very personal form of lyricism—an unusual, unique combination. To me, it is this linking of power and beauty—in both the writing and the playing here—that distinguishes Fly With the Wind and makes it possibly my personal favorite among the 17 albums that I worked on with this extraordinary artist during our eight years together at Milestone.”
Personnel: McCoy Tyner on piano and various others, including flutist Hubert Laws, bassist Ron Carter, drummer Billy Cobham
