McCoy Tyner Trio: Montreal Jazz Festival 1987

McCoy Tyner Trio: Montreal Jazz Festival 1987

I downloaded these tracks from You Are What You Hear: A Live Jazz Blog. Rather than re-post them I figured I would just provide you the link to their original post...

I've been skeptical that this show is from the festival appearance cited as I cannot find supporting evidence for a McCoy performance there that year, including the historical section of the fest's site, but so it goes...

The line-up for this set was McCoy on piano, Avery Sharp on bass and Louis Hayes on drums. For the latter half of the set the Trio was joined by Sonny Fortune on alto.

Terrific sounding show, apparently from an FM broadcast. Enjoy.
