The Traneumentary: McCoy Tyner Greeting

mccoy

The Traneumentary’s journey started summer 2006 with a visit with McCoy Tyner after a performance at New York’s famed Blue Note jazz club. After McCoy’s first set, I met him in his dressing room and presented an overview of this series and asked if he would be interested in participating. Although he was unaware of podcasts and blogs, he understood the importance of celebrating and expanding the legacy of John Coltrane to a new and digital-savvy audience. He immediately agreed to be a part of this innovative program and then he cut the special greeting contained on this episode. I did not edit much of his original statement for it was purely sincere and loving. Later in this series, you will hear McCoy talk about his personal relationship with John as well as the amazing experience he had playing with the famous Quartet. – JV
