January in Brasil – McCoy in January

There are a few pianists who could keep up with Oscar Petersen, actually, there are probably a lot but we’ll never hear of them because the conglomerate structure that controls media can’t turn a dime on diversity.  That withstanding, McCoy Tyner has turned more than a dime, a phrase and someone’s head with his styling, execution and blazing speed.

Hard to believe that this was recorded 21 years ago.  There isn’t a guitarist on this track, that is bassist Avery Sharpe.
