McCoy Tyner at Revolution Hall
10/11/2016, 4:36 p.m.
PDX Jazz presents legendary jazz pianist McCoy Tyner live in concert at Revolution Hall, the former Washington High School site at 1300 S.E. Stark St., on Tuesday, Oct. 18, in his first Portland appearance in nearly a decade.
A National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master and five time Grammy Award winner, Tyner should need no introduction. His 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.
Tyner rose to fame as the pianist for some of John Coltrane's most revered albums such as My Favorite Things, Live! at the Village Vanguard, and A Love Supreme before founding his own band in the late 1960s. Over the years, Tyner has collaborated with countless jazz greats and has released nearly 80 albums. Tickets are $29-59 in advance. Visit ticketfly.com.
