Jazz Interlude: McCoy Tyner

McCoy Tyner is one of the truly great and influential jazz pianists of the 20th Century.  He is spectacular whether he is playing with a big band, a small group, or in solo performance as he is here, on the Coltrane classic composition Giant Steps.  This is from a 1996 date in Hamburg, Germany.

thanks for posting and I agre that he's one of the truly great pianists of last century, but McCoy looks far too old for this to be from 1966. I think this is more recent. still, a legend.

Thanks for catching that. It was a typo. This is from 1996, not 1966.
