The Greeting is a 1978 live album by jazz pianist McCoy Tyner, his thirteenth release on the Milestone label. It was recorded in March 1978 at the Great American Music Hall and features performances by Tyner with a sextet featuring George Adams, Joe Ford, Charles Fambrough, Woody "Sonship" Theus and Guilherme Franco and a solo performance of John Coltrane's "Naima". The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow calls the album "One of the better McCoy Tyner records on Milestone... An excellent example of McCoy Tyner's playing in the 1970s".[2]
