28072Re: [ProgAndOther] Any McCoy Tyner suggestions?
- Feb 4, 2014I don't know enough about Tyner to make any suggestion. I listened to the
samples from this album at
http://www.allmusic.com/album/fly-with-the-wind-mw0000188866, and am very
intrigued. I've heard a number of things by him, but nothing like this. The
brief bit of "Rolem" I heard does actually remind me of "Sound Chaser" a bit
(mainly the piano part). I'll have to check it out.
