The Real McCoy is the seventh album by jazz pianist McCoy Tyner and his first released on the Blue Note label. It was recorded on April 21, 1967 following Tyner's departure from the John Coltrane Quartet and features performances by Tyner with Joe Henderson, Ron Carter and Elvin Jones. Producer Alfred Lion recalls the recording session as a "pure jazz session. There is absolutely no concession to commercialism, and there's a deep, passionate love for the music embedded in each of the selections".

Reissued, Remastered. This 1967 quartet was McCoy Tyner's first for Blue Note as a leader, although he had frequently recorded as a sideman for the label-with Wayne Shorter, Joe Henderson, and Grant Green, among others. One of the last recordings produced by Blue Note founder Alfred Lion, and Tyner's first as a leader since leaving the legendary John Coltrane Quartet two years before, the session has a special quality. Fresh out of Coltrane's ensemble, Tyner wasted no time in creating this album, and it is a beautiful piano driven album from start to finish.

Since acquiring the licence for the name, Hitoshi Tsujimoto of The Real McCoy's has managed to breathe life into a brand that had once faded away. Classic American shirts that are built to last. McCoy's use the best fabrics on the market making them an easy wear that only gets better with time.
