Here's a 10 minute trailer...Derek arppears just around the 7:00 mark...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j966AGrGXZU

McCoy Tyner, the great jazz pianist who played with Coltrane on some of his most important records is releasing an album called "Guitars". Several guitarists guesting including Derek Trucks, John Scofield, Ribot, Frisell and Bela Fleck ...

This sounds like a very cool project.

Here's the notes form the Youtube clip...

On September 23, 2008 McCoy Tyner will release a CD/DVD titled GUITARS on McCoy Tyner Music / Half Note Records featuring a trio of Ron Carter, Jack DeJohnette and special guests Bela Fleck, Derek Trucks, John Scofield, Marc Ribot and Bill Frisell.

Not going to move from this angel. From what I heard he is very melodic and it sounds great. I remeber after the A&E special he mentioned how he recorded with McCoy in the same place a few weeks earlier. That is too cool to record with several of your idols, let alone be in the same room.

I saw McCoy a few years ago at a Montreaux Fest in Atlanta at Piedmont Park. I expected a laid back trio show by an older jazz legend. I was slightly disapointed to hear it was only a trio performance. I wasn't sure if it would pack the punch so to speak for a fest performance in front of 15,000.

I was wrong. It well exceeded my expectations. It flat out rocked.....And rolled and twisted and turned. It was high energy for about 1 hour and 15 straight minutes. I was very impressed. I need to go deeper with my collection of McCoy Tyner music for sure. What a legend.

McCoy is definitely not a nostalgia act. In a way, it's a shame that he is overshadowed by his relationship with Trane, because Tyner is one of the all-time greats in his own right. Those Coltrane classics like A Love Supreme and Impressions wouldn't sound the same without his playing. Those chords! Nobody lays down a big block chord like McCoy Tyner.

Considering his love of Coltrane's music, it must have been a dream come true for Derek to get to play with this living legend. Not to mention Ron Carter on bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums! It's a shame they couldn't get a better rhythm section

Eric Clapton....check
Carlos Santana...check
McCoy Tyner...check

Who's next on the list?

Excellent question, Rob. I would think that there are so many players out there that would love to play with Derek that we could see him with just about anyone. Maybe he'll do a Ry Cooder and record with some players from a different neck of the woods - I could see that. In the meantime, I'm very psyched about this release.

How true! Very well stated.
