|MCCOY TYNER, one of the greatest names in jazz piano, and the last remaining member of John Coltrane’s legendary aggregate, launches McCoy Tyner Music, a Half Note subsidiary dedicated to highlighting him in a host of creative situations and partnerships. QUARTET finds him in the company of JOE LOVANO, CHRISTIAN MCBRIDE, and JEFF “TAIN” WATTS - three power players whose incendiary passions ignite this live performance.
Tyner is a path-finder, a monumental pianist whose music is rooted in bedrock. His play is a cornerstone in the edifice of modern jazz. This recording from NEW YEAR’S EVE 2006, underscores why.
