McCoy Tyner to Perform at Ertegun Jazz Hall of Fame Festival at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola, July 18, 7:30 & 9:30pm

Ertegun Jazz Hall of Fame Festival Honors
2017 Ertegun Jazz Hall of Fame Inductees Tito Puente,
Don Redman, and McCoy Tyner, July 18-20

 

New York, NY (June 29, 2017) – Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola announces NEA Jazz Master McCoy Tyner will perform the first night of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Ertegun Jazz Hall of Fame Festival on July 18. The Ertegun Jazz Hall of Fame Festival will honor the 2017 class of inductees Tito Puente, Don Redman, and McCoy Tyner with specially curated sets at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, July 18-20. This will be Tyner’s Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola debut and his first return to Jazz at Lincoln Center since 2012, having previously headlined performances in The Allen Room, now known as The Appel Room, and Rose Theater.

The influence of the 78-year old living legend cannot be overstated, having made invaluable contributions to some of jazz’s greatest concerts and albums as a part of the John Coltrane Quartet from 1960-65.

“We are honored to have McCoy Tyner join us in person as part of the induction celebration for the Ertegun Jazz Hall of Fame,” says Todd Stoll, Vice President of Education at Jazz at Lincoln Center. “We created the program to continue the tradition of remembering and honoring jazz greats, and we are especially honored when a living jazz master is inducted. By opening the vote up to the public, our goal is to share and inspire the next generation by honoring great jazz traditions.” 

The Ertegun Jazz Hall of Fame honors legendary artists or members of the jazz community based on their singular dedication and outstanding contribution to jazz.  To date, Jazz at Lincoln Center has inducted 54 members and will continue to induct new members annually. This year’s inductees were nominated by a committee of select musicians and scholars and voted in by public vote from April 5 through April 30.

Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola is located in Frederick P. Rose Hall, Home of Jazz at Lincoln Center, on Broadway at 60th Street, New York City.
