McCoy Tyner in 1973
Here is a poem in response by Eric Wagner:
A Poem for McCoy Tyner
I don’t think much about heaven,
but it struck me this morning that
the John Coltrane Quartet gave
. a concert for God today
after two days of pleasant rehearsals.
McCoy Tyner, Elvin Jones, and Jimmy Garrison
joined Mr. Coltrane for three extended sets.
Clifford Brown and Lee Morgan sat in for
. a rousing encore of “Mr. P. C.”
making Paul Chambers smile, sitting with
Charlie Parker, Ornette Coleman and
God seemed most pleased
by the performance.
