The world lost one of its greatest pianists and musical artists on March 6 of 2020 when McCoy Tyner passed away. Along with his groundbreaking work with John Coltrane’s legendary Classic Quartet, Tyner changed the way the piano in Jazz was played. His harmonic and rhythmic concepts spawned an entire school of pianists and his influence is still a primary one today. We will draw on his original compositions from all parts of his long for this concert.

The Off-Minor Jazz series are thematic concerts performed at City of Asylum @ Alphabet City. The series highlights the music of legendary jazz composers and players, and represents a style rarely played in commercial venues. Curated by drummer Thomas Wendt, the series features specialized musicians for each concert.
