The Brad Turner Quartet
from Vancouver BC
Vancouver-based Brad Turner is one of Canada’s most prominent and prolific jazz artists. An award-winning trumpeter and composer, he is also a very gifted jazz pianist and drummer. Hailed by the noted Canadian jazz writer Mark Miller as “a kind of Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock and Keith Jarrett all rolled into one” and by famed jazz saxophonist Joe Lovano as “a beautiful musician,’ Turner’s modern jazz quartet is simply one of the best units around. With Brad on trumpet, the group also features three of the country’s greatest rhythm-section players — André Lachance bass, Bruno Hubert piano, Dylan van der Schyff drums. They perform original compositions with an interactive, cutting-edge sensibility.
