The event was great I enjoyed McCoy Tyner and Build An Arc was great. They were a lot better than I expected, but how could I expect less when Dwight Trible is singing with them. I had a great time!!!!

Goldstar you did it again. A friend of mine wanted tickets so I got them, and he couldn't say enough about the excellent seat and concert. We now have another believer that Goldstar is great. He's ready for me to find another concert for him.

Description

McCoy Tyner might have revolutionized jazz piano with his right hand tied behind his back. It was his explosively percussive left hand and rich harmonic chords that transcended conventional styles, starting from his first days as a teen in the immeasurably influential John Coltrane Quartet. The master pianist, who is still brimming with inventiveness after more than 80 albums, performs here with his trio and special guest Grammy-winning saxophonist Gary Bartz.

Opening the concert is the massive L.A.-based ensemble Build An Ark, whose soulful improvised music draws on the collective talents and influences of about 20 musicians on stage, including hypnotic vocalist Dwight Trible.
