Revelations is a 1988 album by McCoy Tyner released on the Blue Note label. It was Tyner's first solo piano album since Echoes of a Friend (1972) and first Blue Note recording (apart from 1985's It's About Time with Jackie McLean) since Asante (1970). It was recorded in October 1988 and features thirteen solo performances by Tyner recorded at Merkin Hall. The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow states that "This is a rather special project from one of the finest jazz pianists of the past 35 years".[2]
