McCoy Tyner

Philadelphia-born McCoy Tyner has one of the most distinctive sounds in modern jazz. After playing around his home town as a young man, he achieved his first national exposure in 1960 at the age of 22 with Benny Golson and Art Farmer's Jazztet. Later that same year, he joined John Coltrane's quartet, an association that catapulted the young pianist to the forefront of the modern jazz scene. Tyner performed with Coltrane until 1965, appearing on many groundbreaking recordings including "My Favorite Things" and "A Love Supreme". After leaving Coltrane, McCoy began leading his own group, featuring his own compositions and incorporating influences from African and Asian music in addition to his jazz roots. Tyner continues to perform around the world to this day.

Tyner's piano sound was originally influenced by the bebop piano greats like Bud Powell and Thelonious Monk, and his skill in the bebop genre can be heard in his work with the Jazztet. During his tenure with Coltrane, Tyner refined and developed his style in a way that transcended the earlier traditions. His modern sound is characterized by a strong and aggressive left hand, a feature that was largely absent in the bebop style. His method of voicing chords in fourths, rather than the traditional thirds, creates a looser, more ambiguous sense of harmony. His use of pentatonic and other non-traditional scales further gives his music a sound recognizably distinct from earlier jazz.

While most famous for his radical and influential new piano style, Tyner is also a prolific composer, his pieces incorporating many of the same innovations as his playing. The Tribute Trio is pleased to present the works of this living jazz legend.
