RIP McCoy Tyner

Recommended Posts

RIP to a legend.  Like most I first got interested in him via Coltrane. I was supposed to see him at the Blue note I think last year and never made it. Damn. I remember saying this might be my last chance too. 

My favorite Things feels appropriate here and McCoy's solo from about 2:18-7:02 is sublime

 

 

 

 

Not super familiar with his solo work but I know this one well . A+

saw him At the Village Vanguard about 25 years ago.  One of the legends ... 

LOVE that he stated he left Coltranes band after a Love Supreme because he felt it was not in sync with the jazz he loved.  I felt the same way, never got the Love Supreme thing and I love Coltrane.

Love Supreme is really easy to play and you can brag that you play, McLaughlin, Santana AND Coltrane :)

I could listen to Miles and Trane forever.

This is a big loss.  You could argue Tyner as the greatest ever along with Oscar Peterson, Art Tatum, Bud Powell or Bill Evans.  RIP.

The music playing as they escort you into the afterlife:
