An excellent bassist, Avery Sharpe is best known for his longtime association with the McCoy Tyner Trio. He originally played piano (starting when he was eight) and accordion, switching to electric (and eventually acoustic) bass a few years later. At the University of Massachusetts, Sharpe had the opportunity to study with Reggie Workman, and he gigged with Wynton Marsalis and Pat Metheny. Sharpe first teamed up with McCoy Tyner in his early-’80s sextet, and has been a member of the pianist’s trio since 1984. Avery has been a Litchfield Jazz Camp teaching artist since 2008.
