Jazz legend does Bacharach by Kurt Wildermuth
"When the great jazz pianist McCoy Tyner died in 2020, he was best remembered for his work with the toweringly influential jazz saxophonist John Coltrane, and rightly so. From 1960 to 1965, mainly in a quartet with bassist Jimmy Garrison and drummer
Elvin Jones, in concert and on such classic recordings where Tyner and Coltrane hammered out a multidimensional kind of bop. Saluted in Tyner's obituaries but without quite the same reverence was the work Tyner did as a sideman and a leader (with some
six dozen albums to his name). Completely lost in the shuffle was an interesting excursion, 'What the World Needs Now: The Music of Burt Bacharach' (1997)."
