Off Minor Jazz Series Live from Alphabet City: Greetings to Saud, Celebrating McCoy Tyner
Tuesday, February 23 from 7:00 to 8:30 pm
Enjoy an evening of original jazz that will be broadcast live from the Alphabet City stage with The Off Minor Jazz Series. The world lost one of its greatest pianists and musical artists when McCoy Tyner passed away last year. 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.
