    Alfred "McCoy" Tyner — the American jazz pianist best known for his work with the John Coltrane Quartet — has died. Tyner's family confirmed his passing today on social media, though a cause of death was not revealed. He was 81.

    "McCoy was an inspired musician who devoted his life to his art, his family and his spirituality," the artist's family wrote in a statement. "McCoy Tyner's music and legacy will continue to inspire fans and future talent for generations to come. The Tyner family is grateful for your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time."

    I used to subscribe to a jazz CD of the month club. Got turned onto McCoy Tyner when they sent one of his CDs. It opened a whole new world of music for me. He will be missed.

    I was just listening to him on the radio a few minutes ago. Now I know why. He was one of the greats.

    There’s another guy I wanted to and could have seen.

    I’ve got to stop putting these things off.

    My good friend @Hamstrung talked about seeing Les Paul at the Iridium in New York. Unfortunately, we didn't make it happen.
