The great American pianist, born in Philadelphia on 11 December 1938, died Saturday at the age of 81.
The news of his passing was reported by the official Facebook profile of “Alfred” McCoy Tyner.
Tyner began his career in various groups in his hometown of Philadelphia. In 1962, at the age of 21, he joined the quartet of John Coltrane (who was himself a native of Philadelphia) and, together with Elvin Jones and Jimmy Garrison, the group became one of the most famous (and imitated) ensembles in the history of Jazz, creating albums such as “My Favorite Things”, “A Love Supreme”, and “Ballads”.
Tyner left Coltrane’s quartet in 1965 to start a very long and satisfying solo career, as well as that of a sideman; “Extensions”, “Sahara” and “Fly With The Wind” are some of his most famous albums.
McCoy Tyner was one of the most recognizable pianists in the history of jazz with a very percussive style (he had played the congas as a boy) that made him the ideal partner for Coltrane, with whom he shared a melodic, harmonious and rhythmic approach.
