Here is a quintessential bit of McCoy Tyner vocabulary.

McCoy influenced everyone that came after him when it came to playing in a post-bop modal style, and this line from “Reaching Fourth” (1963) captures the essence of his style.

He plays over a static A7 chord and puts his characteristic McCoy spin on it.

See if you can do it like McCoy!
