McCoy Tyner

1938 -

Origin: United States

Main instrument: Piano

Genre: Jazz

One of the great jazz pianists of the past 50 years, McCoy Tyner is credited with developing a blues-based, rhythmically charged playing style. At 22, he accompanied John Coltrane on the classic album My Favorite Things (1960) and joined the saxophonist's seminal quartet that same year. In the 1970s, Tyner gained recognition as an important artist in his own right, emerging from Coltrane's shadow. More than 40 years after his debut, the composer, arranger, bandleader and musician is far from recreating his glory days, continuing instead to steer his truly unique sound in new directions.
