McCoy Tyner is a pianist from Philadelphia, known mostly for his work with John Coltrane's quartet. With Coltrane, he played on the landmark albums Olé Coltrane, My Favourite Things, Ascension, and of course, A Love Supreme. His years after Coltrane had passed, have led him on a long solo career just as impressive as his work with the master, releasing a great number of post-bop albums, and taking a path somewhere between the avant garde and fusion stylings of jazz.
Possibly my favourite pianist.
The Real McCoy
Sorry, it's really hard to find links for much of his work. The torrent has almost everything though, and enough seeders to provide decent speed. The three albums listed though are excellent.
