In the early 1960s, pianist McCoy Tyner (1938) made a name for himself in the legendary quartet of John Coltrane. His later work was therefore often compared with Coltrane's pioneering albums, but Tyner had many more colors on his musical palette. He made a series of albums for Blue Note and Milestone, and also played as a sideman for others. His immediately recognizable playing serves as an example for many young pianists. Tyner has played with all kinds of lineups, including with strings and in a big band. He has also immersed himself in the music of Africa, India and Arab countries, as well as having studied Western classical music. He is bringing a guest with him who has a very famous last name: saxophonist Ravi Coltrane (1965). Yes, the son of, but also someone with an identity all his own. Coltrane has played with a long list of big names and has been releasing his own albums since 1997.
In addition, he produces albums for other jazz artists. He recently signed a contract with Blue Note Records and released Spirit Fiction, his first album with the label.
