Thread: Rest in peace, McCoy Tyner

    Damn, that's a helluva story to start a thread. Never heard of Tyner but that story makes me think of A Mighty Wind and Ed Begley Jr's story in the movie.

    Too cool. Life has those moments, eh?

    Sad loss.

    One of the best improvisers, on any instrument, ever. Full stop.

    Get yourself a copy of John Coltrane's A Love Supreme. Listen to it at least three times before judging, if you can manage that. Tyner is the piano player on that album.

    Yeah, I'm bummed about this. Last night I listened to his first solo album, "Inception." Interesting to hear how steeped in bebop he still was at the time; he had recently turned 24. I'm glad that I've seen him live twice, but wish it had been more. R.I.P. McCoy.

    I saw MT at least twice in the last 20 years. Once at the Blue Note in NYC. No nonsense , kick ass set. Sat down , no nods , fidgeting , just blew right into it.
    RIP.
