McCoy Tyner Big Band

avec Homard Johnson, Ricky Ford et Steve Turre
If you had to describe McCoy Tyner with just one word, it would have to be "powerful". Since there's no jazz instrument more powerful than the big band, the two brought together make for an explosion of sounds that are the very essence of jazz. When he worked with John Coltrane, Tyner dabbled in hard-bop and then free style; now, he gets his energy and inspiration from Count Basie and Duke Ellington, drawing from their genius to enrich bis own. With bis 17 musicians, among them Steve Turre, Ricky Ford and Howard Johnson, Tyner will bring us back to the golden age of African-American music. On the program, the great classics, but also some of Tyner's own compositions adapted for the big band. With last year's solo performances and now this year's big band, Tyner will have shown us an impressive range of incomparable talent. Let's just sit back and enjoy!
