Review by Scott Yanow: McCoy Tyner Trio - Bon Voyage

22-08-2013 Review by Scott Yanow: McCoy Tyner Trio - Bon Voyage

McCoy Tyner’s Bon Voyage features his 1987 trio with Avery Sharpe and Louis Hayes in exciting form.
            
Ever since he joined the John Coltrane Quartet in late-1960, McCoy Tyner has had his own distinctive voice on the piano. A master of modal jazz, Tyner developed his own chord voicings and percussive style. He was one of the major influences on other pianists by the time he left Coltrane in early 1966 and has led his own bands, usually trios, ever since. While his approach has not changed much since then, he has continued to grow within his own style and has made scores of high quality recordings while remaining a highly influential force.
           
Bon Voyage features Tyner’s 1987 trio. Avery Sharpe was his bassist for over ten years, contributing solid support and excellent solos, many of them using his bow. Louis Hayes was with Tyner’s group for a briefer period but fit right in. In his career, Hayes has played with most of the who’s who of jazz since the 1960s.
           
This CD features the trio performing five jazz standards (including “Summertime,” “How Deep Is The Ocean” and “Yesterdays”) plus three Tyner originals (“Jazz Walk,” “Bon Voyage” and “Blues For Max”). Tyner is as powerful as ever, making each song sound like his own and coming up with fresh ideas.
           
Bon Voyage is another gem from the great McCoy Tyner.
