Telarc releases McCoy Tyner's finest moments from five stellar recordings.
“A lot of musicians made so many sacrifices just so I could do what I am doing today. It is like being handed a gift. I have tried to be the best I can. I have never rested on my laurels. I just feel fortunate that I am able to do what I am doing.” — McCoy Tyner
McCoy Tyner, one of the most innovative and influential jazz piano players of the last four decades, has been a recurring luminary on the Telarc roster since the release of McCoy Tyner and the Latin Jazz All-Stars in 1999. Since that initial Telarc offering, he has recorded four additional sets on the prestigious label: McCoy Tyner with Stanley Clarke and Al Foster, released in 2000, Jazz Roots, released in 2000, Land of Giants, released in 2003 and Illuminations, released in 2004.
Afro Blue is a cross section of Tyner’s greatness captured in eight tracks culled from his Telarc catalog.
Listen to the genius of Afro Blue and hear what makes McCoy Tyner one of the greatest jazz pianists of his generation – and one of the finest artists Telarc has ever recorded.
