Celebrated pianist Geri Allen continues to exude musical brilliance. Her release, Flying Toward The Sound finds the formidable musician invoking the spirit of her musical icons, Cecil Taylor, McCoy Tyner and Herbie Hancock. The eight part solo piano suite embodies the essence of each pianist coupled with Allen’s complex yet spiritual vision. An engaging highlight on the album is Allen’s tribute to Cecil Taylor on “Dancing Mystic Poets at Midnight,” which finds Allen incorporating percussion and pulsating rhythms.

Reviews
"Geri Allen's new album, Flying Toward the Sound (Motema Music), is a stunner. She calls it "a solo piano excursion inspired by Cecil Taylor, McCoy Tyner and Herbie Hancock." In jazz pianists' lingo, this is like Babe Ruth pointing to a spot in right-center field. And she slugs the ball out of the park." - Fred Kaplan, Stereophile
