While playing in John Coltrane’s historic early-to-mid-’60s quartet, McCoy Tyner employed a pentatonic-derived, African-tinged chordal vocabulary that gave left-hand accompaniment and right-hand line playing a palpably physical forward thrust. Still blazing new trails, he's firing up a five-piece with Gary Bartz and John Blake Jr. this weekend.
