Monday Long Song

Tyner and Trane

The hugely influential jazz pianist McCoy Tyner passed away last week at the age of 81. His dense 60 year discography includes sessions with legendary artists such as Wayne Shorter, Grant Green, Art Blakey, Stanley Turrentine, Lee Morgan and, most notably, John Coltrane, with whom he recorded over 25 albums worth of material. In a very busy musical life, he also issued 70+ LPs under his own name. By way of tribute, here's the epic title track from Coltrane's 1962 album 'Olé', which features a stellar line-up of Tyner, Trane, Freddie Hubbard, Elvin Jones, Art Davis, Reggie Workman and Eric Dolphy.
