McCoy Tyner Trio with Gary Bartz

Though he'll forever be remembered for his role in John Coltrane's group in the first half of the 1960s, there's a lot more to McCoy Tyner than that. The 73-year-old Philadelphia native has been a towering presence in the world of jazz piano for decades, famed for his distinctive, staccato right-hand soloing style. Recent shows prove that he's still a vigorously energetic player (even if he isn't as steady on his feet as he used to be), and he should be on good form at this Blue Note date, featuring a guest appearance from saxophonist – and longtime Tyner associate – Gary Bartz.
