mccoy81McCoy Tyner in Montreux, July 18, 1981

I thought that with this post as well as that post, I was finished with digitizing all of the McCoy Tyner footage from Otto Flückiger’s old VHS cassettes. But  this was not so – as I discovered three more clips that I had previously overlooked.

First up is McCoy Tyner playing “Eternally Yours” solo at the Jazz Festival Montreux on July 18, 1981:

From the same day (but from a different VHS tape) here is McCoy’s Quintet playing “Walk Spirit Talk Spirit” and “It’s You Or No One”. The band consists of Tyner, John Blake (vln), Joe Ford (as), Avery Sharpe (b), and Ronnie Burrage (d).

And finally here is McCoy Tyner’s band a year earlier at the Jazzwoche Burghausen in Germany on March 14, 1980. Band members are: Joe Ford (sax), Earl Conrad (vln), Avery Sharpe (b), George Johnson (dr), Guilherme Franco (perc). They are playing Tyners “The Seeker”.

Enjoy!
