McCOY TYNER

McCoy Tyner's blues-based piano style, replete with sophisticated chords and an explosively percussive left hand, has transcended conventional styles to become one of the most identifiable sounds in improvised music. His harmonic contributions and dramatic rhythmic devices form the vocabulary of a majority of jazz pianists.

Born in 1938 in Philadelphia, Tyner became a part of the fertile jazz and R&B scene of the early ‘50s. At 17, he began a career-changing relationship with Miles Davis sideman John Coltrane, performing on his classic recordings My Favorite Things, Live at the Village Vanguard, and A Love Supreme.



In 1965, Tyner left Coltrane's group to explore his destiny as a composer and bandleader. Among his major projects were the 1967 album entitled The Real McCoy and the 1972 Grammy Award-nominated release Sahara. He continued to record prolifically throughout the '80s, '90s, and through the turn of the millennium.

In the summer of 2005, Tyner joined forces with the Blue Note Jazz Club in New York and became the first client of Blue Note Management. In 2007, that partnership with the Blue Note led to the formation of his own record label, McCoy Tyner Music. His release on the label include Quartet and Guitars. To date, Tyner has released nearly 80 albums under his name, earned four Grammy Awards, and was named a Jazz Master by the National Endowment for the Arts in 2002. He continues to leave his mark on generations of improvisers, and yet he remains a disarmingly modest and spiritually directed man.

ALFREDO RODRIGUEZ

A young pianist of astonishing virtuosity and imagination, Cuban-born Alfredo Rodríguez calls up images of legendary jazz pianists like Keith Jarrett, Thelonious Monk, Art Tatum, Bill Evans, and his compatriot Chucho Valdés. Discovered at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2006 by Quincy Jones, Rodríguez’s star has risen rapidly under the tutelage of the famed producer.



Since arriving in the US in 2009, Rodríguez has appeared on numerous prestigious stages, including the Playboy Jazz Festival; the Detroit, Newport, San Francisco, North Sea, Umbria, and Vienna jazz festivals; as well as in important jazz rooms such as Ronnie Scott’s, Sculler’s, Yoshi’s, the Jazz Standard, the Blue Note, and Jazz Alley. Alongside Latin piano legends Michel Camilo and Eddie Palmieri, he performed to sold-out audiences at the Arsht Center in Miami and the AT&T Center in Dallas on Larry Rosen’s record-breaking JAZZ ROOTS series. He also co-wrote "Better City, Better Life," the English version of the theme song for the 2010 Shanghai World Expo.

Rodríguez’s first album - Sounds of Space - featuring original material and produced by Quincy Jones, will be released worldwide on Jones’s Qwest Records later this fall. Of Rodríguez, Jones said, “Alfredo is very special, and I do not say that easily because I have been surrounded by the best musicians in the world my entire life. He is one of the best.”
