Hi Corno Dolce; Mccoy Tyner is simply "off the hook". He is truly amazing! His Super Trios cd is among my prized possessions of my jazz collection!

Hi Steve,

Might you have "McCoy Tyner plays Coltrane" in your collection? The raw power and drive of his trio in that recording is mind-boggling to say the least...:eek::eek::eek:

Unfortunately Corno, I don't have the particular cd you mention. However being a huge fan of Trane's--and already having Monk and Coltrane at Carnegie Hall--I fully intend to purchase the Tyner/Coltrane collaboration from Amazon ASAP. Thanx for the heads up on it!

Hi Duckmeister Teddy,

A colleague of mine here in Moscow said to me: McCoy Tyner might not be the "Lyrical Melodist" that Keith Jarrett is but McCoy's volcanic energy, rhythm, drive, power, and unflappable stamina make him a brightly shining star on Heaven's Firmament. He is so totally unique and original - No one will ever come near his style, although there will be plenty of those who will copy and mimic.

Best always,

CD :tiphat::tiphat::tiphat::tiphat:

Dear duckmeister teddy,

Thank you so very much for your kind words - I am but a simple man who is loquacious.

I was just listening to this man's inspired playing with Coltrane on a piece called "One and Four" [aka Mr. Day] from Trane's Blues. If you don't have this particular cd, you should give this a listen on you tube or last fm. It is smokin'! Also check out a piece called "Equinox" by Trane and Tyner--AWESOME! Corno Dolce, where art thou? :confused:

Hi Corno. I'm absolutely with you on this; these are truly great performances by two geniuses. The back and forth between them is just so melodic and unbelievable that it sounds as if they have been performing together all their lives. Simply awesome! Would you happen to know from which Trane or Tyner cd the piece "Equinox" is from? I must purchase it ASAP! It's good hearing from you--hope all is well with you and your family. Steve

If I'm not mistaken, it could be Corno Dolce's classical side coming out here,
if he thinks McCoy Tyner is less melodic than Keith Jarrett, or anyone else.
Sensing Mr. Tyners' power is like just hearing a rhythm, not catching melody right away.
But adding power to melody, even a tense grandeur, can enable a delicacy melody alone can't.
More than creating cool, even his silences can provide a new focus of rapture.

In 1977, I saw McCoy Tyner during his "Atlantis" tour. The best music ever.
He was kind, and very gracious, spending twenty minutes with me between sets,
when I saw he was standing all alone at the end of the bar with his own orange juice container in the cooler.
That's how long it took for him to break me into the jazz scene, big big time.
Hi John. That's a great post and I am so glad you saw Tyner in person; it must have been awesome indeed! Thanks so much for sharing that with us!

Hi John Watt,

It was an opinion of a colleague of mine in Moscow, not my own. I respect McCoy's artistry totally.

Hi Steve,

I'm so sorry - I wish I knew which Trane or Tyner piece 'Equinox" is from. Thank you for your well-wishing of my tribe. I trust that all is well with yours too.

Cordially yours,

CD :tiphat::tiphat::tiphat::tiphat::tiphat:

Thanks, Corno, every one on this end is hanging in there. I'll do some further research into that "Equinox" piece and--if you like--let you know on which album/cd it might be found.

Hi Corno, re: "Equinox", it is from the Coltrane's Sound cd. I just found it thru wiki and listened on you tube.com

Hi Corno. Check this out: http://youtu.be/0lOYnQ (http://youtu.be/0lOYnQ)- _ Hw. I'm not sure I posted this link right, but if you go to youtube.com and type in Afro- Blue, that's what I was trying to get you to. Sorry, I am still perfecting my link sharing skills. Mccoy Tyner's playing is--as always--out of this world. Enjoy!
