Pianist McCoy Tyner (1938) made his name in the legendary quartet of John Coltrane. Due to this experience his later work was often compared with that groundbreaking period. But Tyner had more colors on his musical palette. The pianist recorded with Blue Note and Milestone and also accompanied many other artists. In the years that followed his musical spectrum grew even larger. Tyner has worked with different sorts of groups, with strings and with a big band; he has immersed himself in the music of Africa, India and Arab countries and has also studied European classical music. This icon of jazz music now brings us his project Echoes With A Friend. In this concert, first, two important pianists who are indebted to Tyner (Antonio Faraò and Craig Taborn) demonstrate his influence. Then Tyner himself will enter the stage with bassist Gerald Cannon and drummer Francisco Mela. An exciting encounter of different generations.
