Tales from the far Side 12.03.20 Remembering McCoy Tyner

On this edition I pay tribute to the late great McCoy Tyner, one of the greatest Jazz pianists of our time who sadly passed away on the 6th of March at the age of 81. And I am looking back at his extraordinary career as a member of the ground-breaking classic John Coltrane Quartet and as a leader of his own groups.

TALES FROM THE FAR SIDE is live on air on CRC102.9fm and on www.crcfm.ie every Thursday 8-9 pm with a repeat on Saturday 9-10 pm. And there is a podcast of the show available on the web site all through the week. The show has established itself over the years with a small but devoted listenership (even beyond Jazz-fans) and since the introduction on internet the listenership extended nationally and internationally.
