McCoy Tyner

from The Great Jazz Pianists: Speaking of Their Lives and Music, page 243:

Did you listen to any vocal music for inspiration or to stimulate your ideas? I did pick up a couple of religious pieces written quite a long time ago. One was a record of church chants sung in Greek by a choir of priests. It was just to get the sound of the voices in my ear, although what I'm writing has nothing to do with that music
