This week a tribute to the legendary McCoy Tyner, plus a dip in the archive and a new release. The great McCoy Tyner sadly passed on March 6th. With a stellar career, best known as part of the great John Coltrane Quartet, and with a respectable solo discography, he is one the giants of jazz in the late 20th and early 21st century. A brief look into a remarkable lifetime of music.
Also on the show great cuts from trumpet maestro Chet Baker and the great tenor saxophonist David Murray. There's also a track from the new album from Christopher Hollyday who returns with the second release since his come back.

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
