It is to McCoy Tyner's great credit that his career after John Coltrane has been far from anti-climatic. Along with Bill Evans, Tyner has been the most influential pianist in jazz of the past 50 years, with his chord voicings being adopted and utilized by virtually every younger pianist. A powerful virtuoso and a true original (compare his playing in the early '60s with anyone else from the time), Tyner (like Thelonious Monk) has not altered his style all that much from his early days but he has continued to grow and become even stronger.

Tyner grew up in Philadelphia, where Bud Powell and Richie Powell were neighbors. As a teenager he gigged locally and met John Coltrane. He made his recording debut with the Art Farmer-Benny Golson Jazztet, but after six months left the group to join Coltrane in what (with bassist Jimmy Garrison and drummer Elvin Jones) would become the classic quartet. Few other pianists of the period had both the power and the complementary open-minded style to inspire Coltrane, but Tyner was never overshadowed by the innovative saxophonist. During the Coltrane years (1960-1965), the pianist also led his own record dates for Impulse.

After leaving Coltrane, Tyner struggled for a period, working as a sideman (with Ike and Tina Turner, amazingly) and leading his own small groups; his recordings were consistently stimulating even during the lean years. After he signed with Milestone in 1972, Tyner began to finally be recognized as one of the greats, and he has never been short of work since. Although there have been occasional departures (such as a 1978 all-star quartet tour with Sonny Rollins and duo recordings with Stephane Grappelli), Tyner has mostly played with his own groups since the '70s, which have ranged from a quartet with Azar Lawrence and a big band to his trio. In the '80s and '90s, Tyner did the rounds of labels (his old homes Blue Note and Impulse! as well as Verve, Enja, and Milestone) before settling in with Telarc in the late '90s and releasing a fine series of albums including 2000's Jazz Roots: McCoy Tyner Honors Jazz Piano Legends of the 20th Century and 2004's Illuminations. In 2007, Tyner returned with the studio album McCoy Tyner Quartet featuring saxophonist Joe Lovano, bassist Christian McBride, and drummer Jeff "Tain" Watts.
Scott Yanow, All Music Guide


McCoy Tyner's work with the John Coltrane Quartet is well documented, and this CD marks a welcome return to that format. Recorded live at Yoshi's in Oakland, CA, over New Year's, Joe Lovano does the honors in the tenor sax chair, while bassist Christian McBride and drummer Jeff "Tain" Watts hold the rhythm section together with honor, passion, and drive. The world-class bassist and drummer, usually known for their overt showmanship and over the top chops, show remarkable restraint and sensitivity throughout. Tyner and friends play several of his original compositions, well-known and revered over the years. Lovano sounds, eerily enough, like Pharoah Sanders, employing a slightly staggered expansive vibrato on "Walk Spirit, Talk Spirit," while using a more haunting stance à la Coltrane for "Mellow Minor," a new modern mainstream tune. Sounding more like himself, Lovano and the group join a loping desert caravan for the beautiful "Sama Layuca," with Lovano playing the part originally written for flute. They rip through "Passion Dance" and melt abject militarism during the poignant ballad "Search for Peace." Tyner, in character, utilizes a minimalist palette to extrapolate on improvisationally during his solos. After reported health problems, it is good to hear he is sounding quite inspired and energetic during the entire date. The happy song "Blues on the Corner" further cements his upbeat demeanor, while the finale/solo standard "For All We Know" is truly the real McCoy, replete with the many flourishes, dynamism, and harmonic colorations that distinguish him from all others. In many ways this is a remarkable date, a well-paced program with all the pieces (save "For All We Know" timed at around ten minutes, proof positive that Tyner's game is still very much on, and hovering at a very high level.

L’Angolo Critico

Il volto in copertina non potrebbe essere più nobile e d'altra parte uno dei protagonisti del jazz non ha bisogno di altro per convincere il pubblico ad acquistare un suo disco. L'occasione in questo caso è imperdibile, dato che il pianista McCoy Tyner (classe 193 torna a una formazione che lo ha portato, seppur come comprimario di lusso, tra le grandi leggende della discografia jazzistica. Ovvero al quartetto con sax tenore, quello che con la guida di John Coltrane portò alla nascita di A Love Supreme. Il disco Quartet ha origine ne(JazzPlanet) McCoy Tyner - Quartet Live (2007) (Eac Flac Cue)l capodanno 2006 ad Oakland, in California: con McCoy Tyner suonano Joe Lovano al sax tenore, Christian McBride al basso e Jeff “Tain” Watts alla batteria. La registrazione dal vivo viene utilizzata da Tyner, già della scuderia Blue Note, per lanciare il suo nuovo marchio discografico. Un esordio che non lascia delusi: certo qua e là compaiono sensazioni e temi che possono ricordare la grande lezione di Coltrane. Ma la carriera e l’autorevolezza del protagonista sono tali da rendere le composizioni di assoluta originalità. Lo stile che proviene dal blues, l’uso della mano sinistra tra il percussivo e accordi con poche e giuste dissonanze danno una grande struttura a brani che trovano nei tre partner dei perfetti esecutori. Passion Dance, ad esempio, vede Lovano in una prova di eccellente lirismo, l’evocativa Sama Layuca ha in McBride un eccellente accompagnatore che sa lanciarsi in momenti solisti, la solare Blues On The Corner è terreno fertile per le percussioni di Watts. E su tutti la classe di Tyner che già emoziona da Walk Spirit, Talk Spirit, un pezzo da novanta così come il conclusivo ma breve For all We Know dove le mani “cantano”. Una lezione di jazz come difficilmente si sente al giorno d’oggi. della musica che suona. Una Piccola riflessione, McCoy quando ha registrato questa meraviglia aveva quasi 70 primavere, cosa non da poco!!Album altamente raccomandato
