As a member of the John Coltrane Quartet during 1960-65, McCoy Tyner introduced his influential style, leading jazz piano beyond Bud Powell into modal and postbop music. His thunderous yet lyrical playing perfectly fit Coltrane's adventurous flights. In 1967, when he recorded The Real McCoy, Tyner was ready to stake his claim as one of the most significant piano giants of the past half-century. Performing in a quartet with Joe Henderson and Elvin Jones, Tyner introduces such exciting numbers as “Passion Dance,” “Contemplation” and “Blues On The Corner.” One can hear the tumultuous 1960s in his playing, grounded with Tyner's own spirituality, contrasting percussive explosions with his own gentle nature. The music is invigorating and full of surprises, giving listeners a definitive look at the brilliance of McCoy Tyner.
