Stereogum’s the Month in Jazz March 2020

Stereogum already ran a regular obituary for legendary pianist McCoy Tyner, who died on 3/6 at 81. So I’m just going to recommend that you dive deep into his catalog from the 1960s and 1970s — I highly recommend The Real McCoy, Tender Moments, Asante, Enlightenment, and Atlantis in particular. And I’ll share a personal story. Though I never got to see Tyner perform live, I did interview him in 2008, when he released Guitars. It was his final studio album, and an interesting musical departure.
