Ellen Rowe's All About the Trio
Time for Tyner: Exploring the Influence of McCoy Tyner
Sunday, April 3rd @ 2:00 PM
For April’s installment of All About the Trio, the Trio will celebrate McCoy Tyner, a cornerstone of John Coltrane’s groundbreaking 1960s quartet and one of the most influential pianists in jazz history. The Trio will discuss elements of Tyner’s style, and perform such tunes as “Inception,” “Passion Dance,” and “Search for Peace.”
Don’t miss another opportunity to be back in Kerrytown Concert House with Ann Arbor’s favorite jazz trio as they highlight Tyner’s tremendous influence!
