In World Outside The Window
May 13, 2021
@Alec I observed a fan bring Mr. Tyner a copy of Coltrane‘s circle of tones one night at Yoshi’s (in the Jack London location). The fan asked if Mr. Tyner would explain Coltrane’s theory to him. He said “that’s Coltrane’s” but “music is like a tree”. He said something like... you have the roots, the trunk, the branches and the leaves.
