After this, this and this post, I was sure that I had digitized all of the McCoy Tyner videos I could find in Otto Flückiger’s VHS collection. But I was wrong. Because recently I found two 1986 TV broadcasts featuring a Tyner band with Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson, John Scofield,  Louis Hayes and Avery Sharpe.

So here to definitely close the series of Tyner clips up are nearly 30 minutes of the band at the Jazz Festival in Montreux, Switzerland on July 14, 1986:

And here, from a  day later, is almost an hour of the same group at the Jazz Festival in Umbria, Italy, on July 15, 1986.

Right after I had finished this post. naturally I found even more footage of McCoy Tyner.

In 1989 Tyner was touring the European Jazz Festival circuit with his Trio featuring guitarist/singer George Benson as an added attraction. I have presented footage from their gig at the Montreux Jazz Festival in my last entry . But i found more. Here are over 40 minutes of George Benson, McCoy Tyner, Avery Sharpe, Aaron Scott playing in Umbria, Italy:

And here are sixteen minutes of the same band playing at the Jazz Festival in Wiesen, Austria:

The final part of this little McCoy Tyner Showcase is his Trio – still featuring Avery Sharpe and Aaron Scott –  joined by Freddie Hubbard and Ralph Moore. This footage comes from the Jazztage Stuttgart 1990.
