A split decision. McCoy Tyner proved once again why he is the most influential living jazz pianist. A thrilling set.
However, Build an Ark was an unworthy and overly long opening act. Their set took nearly one hour, which resulted in Tyner's group not taking the stage until 9:30 pm. Many of those who attended were seen leaving in the middle of Tyner's set-- which didn't end until nearly 11:00 pm-- probably because they had to be at work the next day.
That Build an Ark was permitted almost as much stage time as Tyner's quartet is criminal.

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.
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.
