McCoy Tyner's name might not be as instantly recognizable as John Coltrane or Miles Davis, but the blues-based jazz pianist has been just as influential. He stepped onto the early 1950s jazz and R&B scenes with a heavy left hand that came to define his sound. On Fri., FEB. 15, the MCCOY TYNER TRIO performs at Georgia Tech's Ferst Center for the Arts with tap virtuoso SAVION GLOVER (pictured) of Bring in 'Da Noise, Bring in 'Da Funk fame. The combination should be a percussive explosion of both feet and hands. $32-$50. 8 p.m. 349 Ferst Drive. 404-894-9600. www.ferstcenter.gatech.edu.
