Soliloquy is a 1991 album by McCoy Tyner released on the Blue Note label. Like Revelations (1987) and Things Ain't What They Used to Be (1989) it was recorded at Merkin Hall (without an audience) and features solo performances by Tyner. The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow states that "McCoy Tyner always sounds in prime form and these diverse songs bring out the best in his passionate style. Highly recommended".[2]
