I'll start with McCoy, cause that was the initial post today (I think). Can't say enough - kinda plays piano almost like Trane played sax. Reminds me of a waterfall that keeps going. Love what he does on My favorite Things.
McCoy reminds me of thunder....maybe..a nuclear explosion. The imagery is vast for me when I listen to him.

In some 90's Rolling Stone article on the Dead, the author compares Bob Weirs rythmn playing to Tyner's right hand

Weir's left hand can span approx. 20 frets.

I just thought I'd start another thread on Jazz. Anything goes. Just like jazz. For instance-
I've been listening to a great McCoy Tyner(piano) album called "The Real McCoy" with Joe Henderson on Sax,Elvin Jones on drums.
The piano for me is a great tool in understanding music and jazz for that matter from a theory standpoint. So,with that said I've been enjoying the music of Bill Evans,Oscar Peterson,Art Tatum.
Thanks-Converse.

Great album. Saw him with Mcbride and Ravi Coltrane at Newport Jazzfest in '05.
I do believe McBride is on that album too.

I've been listening to Cannonball Adderly lately.
Funny would be applying super glue to your nuts and putting said nuts on her face.  Talk about "seeing the light" and remaining faithful to the indigo girls manifesto.  :wink: 

There's more airbrush on that shot than on a Peterbilt with a flame job.

I've been listening to this album, great stuff.  I'm not a big Methany fan per se but his collab w/ Ornette brings out some interesting playing. 
Also listening to a lot of  :syf: Spring '72, the Dark Stars and The Other Ones contain very jazzy improv., some of their best. 
Endangered Species is the worst song on that album, I can't stand it. 
Can we talk about the Dead?  I'd love to talk about the fucking Grateful Dead, for once, can we please discuss the Grateful FUCKING Dead!?!?!?!

thought I would continue this thread  - jumping from McCoy to some younger piano players who deserve a listen
Brad Mehldau
Danillo Perez
Michelle Camilo
Jacky Terrason

Mehldau seems to be graduating from clubs to small theaters. The others I think tour mostly in clubs. catch 'em if you can

That's great. I had a good time hearing Wynton Marsalis live at the Cumberland County Civic Center back in 1996. "The Real McCoy" has Ron Carter playing bass. McBride is a great player,too. McCoy at Newport with Coltrane's son....priceless. :-D

Also on the Jazz piano players tip - everyone should listen to Bill Evans all the time.

True. His chord voicings are so creative. Check him out on MySpace for some great tunes. http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=47861933

For the McCoy Tyner and Coltrane listener. A little Eric Dolphy as well. :clap:

Staying on topic here's a solid pairing of great guitar players on YouTube performing "All Blues". Bireli Lagrene and John McLaughlin.  :-D
