McCoy Tyner at SummerStage

The Mccoy Tyner Quartet appeared Wednesday night at SummerStage and the band was just as hot as the 90 degree weather.  Featuring Ravi Coltrane on saxophone, Esperanza Spalding on bass and Francisco Mela on drums the combo traded solos through a consistently tight set. McCoy Tyner has influenced two generations of jazz pianists, most notably Chick Corea, and he was at his best, coolly swinging through the summer heat. Ravi Coltrane has become an accomplished leader over the years and proved equal to the task of matching the master at his best. Combined with a rhythm section that grooved seamlessly with both, the performance made everyone forget the sweltering heat and get into the incomparable experience of world class jazz singing at the heart of Central Park.
