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

The jazz world ushered in the 1960s with a fury of innovative change. A bold avant-garde stretched the form while also making accessible and engaging records. Across just nine months in one corner of that world,pianist McCoy Tyner played on a variety of sessions that together serve as a concise illustration of the ground bop was ceding to modality, melody and more. He began his tenure and apprenticeship with saxophonist John Coltrane, led his own first sessions and participated in the creation of music whose excitement and ingenuity has yet to be surpassed.
