Land of Giants is an album by McCoy Tyner released on the Telarc label in 2003. It was recorded in December 2002 and features performances of by Tyner with Bobby Hutcherson, Charnett Moffett, and Eric Harland. The Allmusic review by Matt Collar states that "While the work here is by no means as provocative as the stuff Hutcherson and Tyner produced in their heydays, it nonetheless proves them to be utter masters of the straight-ahead modern jazz idiom and should appeal to longtime fans".[2]
