Despite his immense influence, McCoy Tyner’s recordings in teh 25 years since he played piano in the John Coltrane Quartet are almost as uneven as they are diverse. Things Ain’t What They Used to Be is his most enchanting album in years — a retrospective of pieces with which he has been associated, played solo or in congenial duets with guitarist John Scofield and tenor saxophonist George Adams. No new ground is broken, but he has already broken enough to house a city of imitators. The material is first-rate, the interpretations self-possessed, even serene.
