Just heard McCoy Tyner has died

What a legend. Saw him perform many times over the years. So sad.

1. He was a monster of a musician

One of my all-time musical heroes.

Here's classic Tyner play Jobim's "Wave" from the "SuperTrios" album:



He had awesome chops and dexterity.

2. Very sad. He left a great body of work, especially with Coltrane.

I have never seen him in person, but I listen to my Coltrane stuff often.
'My Favorite Things', 'Live at the Village Vanguard' and 'A Love Supreme'.
He was 81, a nice long time. RIP.
