Pianist McCoy Tyner turned 80 in December and alto saxophonist Charles McPherson turns 80 in July. To mark both of their birthdays, these renowned musicians will team up on Apr. 5 and 6 at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York to celebrate their life and work.
Joining Wynton Marsalis’ Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Tyner and McPherson will play new big-band arrangements of their own compositions. The arrangements have been written by members of the orchestra.
