A powerful virtuoso \nand a true original (compare his playing in the early '60s with anyone else from the time), Tyner (like \nThelonious Monk) has not altered his style all that much from his early days but he has continued to \ngrow and become even stronger.\n\nMcCoy Tyner grew up in Philadelphia where Bud Powell and Richie Powell were neighbors. As a \nteenager he gigged locally and met John Coltrane. He made his recording debut with the Art \nFarmer-Benny Golson Jazztet, but after six months left the group to join Coltrane in what (with \nbassist Jimmy Garrison and drummer Elvin Jones) would become the classic quartet. Few other \npianists of the period had both the power and the complementary open-minded style to inspire \nColtrane, but Tyner was never overshadowed by the innovative saxophonist. During the Coltrane \nyears (1960-1965), the pianist also led his own record dates for Impulse.\n\nAfter leaving Coltrane, McCoy Tyner struggled for a period, working as a sideman (with Ike and \nTina Turner, amazingly) and leading his own small groups; his recordings were consistently \nstimulating even during the lean years. After he signed with Milestone in 1972, Tyner began to \nfinally be recognized as one of the greats, and he has never been short of work since. Although \nthere have been occasional departures (such as a 1978 all-star quartet tour with Sonny Rollins and \nduo recordings with Stephane Grappelli), Tyner has mostly played with his own groups since the \n'70s, which have ranged from a quartet with Azar Lawrence and a big band to his trio. In the 80's \nand 90's, Tyner did the rounds of labels (his old homes Blue Note and Impulse! as well as Verve, \nEnja and Milestone) before settling in with Telarc in the late 90's and releasing as fine series of \nalbums including 2000's Jazz Roots: McCoy Tyner Honors Jazz Piano Legends of the 20th Century \nand 2004's Illuminations.\n------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
