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.

Enjoy!
