Planet X

Here’s a tribute to the late, very great McCoy Tyner.  He’s on a short list of pianists who have changed the way the instrument is played.  His unique conception of harmony is on display on this tune he recorded in 1968 with his working trio of Herbie Lewis and Freddie Waits.  Maybe it’s just the title, but I hear a little hint of Holst’s “Jupiter” in here.
