GUITARS CD/DVD SET
McCOY TYNER’S newest release and perhaps boldest outing yet, is GUITARS,
a studio throw-down with five of popular music’s most accomplished string spe-
cialists: DEREK TRUCKS, BELA FLECK, BILL FRISELL, JOHN SCOFIELD,
MARC RIBOT. Assisting McCoy are trio mates, Ron Carter and Jack DeJohnette.
With a song stack covering the old and the new (“My Favorite Things,”
Greensleeves,” “500 Miles,” Mr. P.C.,” and numerous free improvisations),
McCoy finds common ground alongside a group of handpicked guitar and
banjo players. It’s a meeting of the generations.
Included, an interactive DVD, documenting the making of GUITARS, replete
with studio performances, chatter, and viewer options for what to see, where
