Pianist McCoy Tyner (age 80 at this writing) is the last surviving member of the legendary John Coltrane Quartet. He recorded over 80 albums between his 1962 debut LP as a leader, Inception (presented here in its entirety), and his most recent release,Solo –Live from San Francisco (2009). Tyner won five Grammy Awards, and considerably broadened the horizons of the genre, blending modal jazz and fusion, hard bop and free jazz. Inception presents the John Coltrane Quartet rhythm section of that period, with Art Davis on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums, and reviews at the time it was released mentioned that it was like a Coltrane disc without Coltrane.
Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, January 10 & 11, 1962.
