McCoy Tyner Tribute feat. McCoy Tyner

Piano luminary Chick Corea, saxophonist Joe Lovano, and a host of the jazz world’s greatest pianists come together in tribute to McCoy Tyner’s five decade career as a musician, composer and arranger – an artist who has helped shape the evolution of jazz since his emergence as part of the classic John Coltrane quartet in the early 1960s. In an evening of solos, duos, and trios, NEA Jazz Masters Tyner, Corea and Kenny Barron are joined by Lovano and a multi-generational lineup of keyboard talent including Marcus Roberts, Geri Allen, and Bay Area-reared artists Benny Green and Taylor Eigsti. Though his ringing, spiritually charged sound has changed little since his epochal five-year tenure with Coltrane, Tyner has hardly stood still. Having absorbed a global array of influences from Brazil, West Africa and the Caribbean, he’s played an essential role in expanding jazz’s expressive palette, while writing more than a dozen bona fide jazz standards. Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime event in celebration of McCoy Tyner’s continuing legacy.
