Featuring McCoy Tyner joined by Sonny Fortune, Calvin Hill and Alphonse Mouzon!

This critically-acclaimed and Grammy-nominated 1972 album marked the beginning of McCoy Tyner's nine-year association with the Milestone label and producer Orrin Keepnews. McCoy Tyner is joined by Sonny Fortune, Calvin Hill and Alphonse Mouzon for this deceptively simple record employing four tunes from the band's regular repertoire and one solo piano piece.

"From the extraordinarily intense "Ebony Queen" through the ruminative solo "A Prayer for My Family, the equally intense "Rebirth," and the concluding, side-long title track, there's not a misstep to be heard. "Sahara," over the course of its 23 minutes, covers vast ground, echoing the majesty and misery of the geographical area with percussion and flute interludes to some of Tyner's very best playing on record. Even something that could have resulted in a mere exercise in exotica, his koto performance on "Valley of Life," exudes both charm and commitment to the form. Tyner would go on to create several fine albums in the mid-'70s, but never again would he scale quite these heights. Sahara is an astonishingly good record and belongs in every jazz fan's collection." - Brian Olewnick, allmusic.com
