Fly with the Wind is a 1976 album by jazz pianist McCoy Tyner, his ninth to be released on the Milestone label. It was recorded in January 1976 and features performances by Tyner with band and string section.


The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow states the album "...has plenty of memorable moments and is a surprising but logical success; Tyner's orchestral piano blended with the strings very well.".[3] The 2008 CD reissue added two alternate takes as bonus tracks.
