"In preparing these hi def remasters, we were very conscientious about maintaining the feel of the original releases while adding a previously unattainable transparency and depth. It now sounds like you've set up your chaise lounge right in the middle of Rudy Van Gelder's studio!" - Blue Note President, Don Was.
The Real McCoy is an engaging and energizing set that finds the extraordinary pianist in peak form. The album highlights his development as both a composer and a performer. For his first album on Blue Note Records, McCoy is joined by Elvin Jones, Ron Carter and Joe Henderson. The quartet performs riveting tunes including "Passion Dance" and "Four by Five."
