Vol. One, 1959-60 | Vol. Two, 1960-61

Most biographers rely on one of two creation myths for pianist McCoy Tyner's career: He first emerged from his native Philadelphia as part of saxophonist Benny Golson and trumpeter Art Farmer's Jazztet, or he had been known to, and gigged around town with, saxophonist John Coltrane as early as 1955, when Tyner was all of 17. Each version is true in its own way but neither tells the whole story. Beginning with his first commercial sessions for trombonist Curtis Fuller in 1959, this playlist documents Tyner's earliest work on the national stage.
