Manhattan Moods is an album by McCoy Tyner and Bobby Hutcherson released on the Blue Note label in 1994. It was recorded in December 1993 and features nine duet performances by Hutcherson and Tyner. The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow states that "It is not too surprising that they blend together quite well for both remain advanced improvisers who are tied to the hard bop/modal tradition".[2]
