Really Real

Just got the sad news that McCoy Tyner has passed away at 81. Alongside Jimmy Garrison and Elvin Jones, the legendary jazz pianist was a prominent member of John Coltrane's famous quartet, and contributed to classic albums as My Favourite Things and A Love Supreme. His solo records, of which I can recommend The Real McCoy ('67) in particular, are well worth seeking out, too. Miss him.

Legend. McCoy Tyner was a pathfinder AND a cornerstone. Miss him too.

I heard that WKCR-FM, a radio station in NYC, will be featuring a memorial tribute today (Sunday, March 8) from 2 to 9 p.m. (EDT). I haven't found a definitive link yet but here's the website:

Thanks for the music dude
