    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Follow-up:

    I sincerely believe that McCoy Tyner belongs at the apex of Jazz pianists since he has been influenced by Art Tatum, Bud Powell, and Bill Evans. He brings the best of American 20th century Jazz harmony, composition and technique and African and Latin American rhythmic styles - all seamlessly blended together by a pianism that ranks right up there with the finest classical pianists.
