McCoy Tyner - the 1980's

from The Great Jazz Pianists: Speaking of Their Lives and Music, page 246:

Do you listen to jazz?

Very little nowadays, because there's so much electronic stuff. I'll go back and listen to Art Tatum's collection, that Pablo series [ Tatum Solo Master-pieces], or I'll listen to Leadbelly, Sarah Vaughan, and Billy Eckstine. I like a lot of different things.
