Blue Bossa is a 1991 album by McCoy Tyner released on the LRC label. It was recorded in February 1991 and features performances by Tyner with Avery Sharpe, Aaron Scott, Raphael Cruz and Claudio Roditi. The Allmusic review by Ken Dryden states "Although Tyner is in top form throughout, this is not an important release in his considerable discography, but its low price makes it worth acquiring".[2]
