Brad Turner Quartet/Trio Double CD Release
12:00 am - 11:00 pm
765 Beatty St.
Multiple Juno award-winning multi-instrumentalist Brad Turner is one of Canada’s most prolific jazz artists. His acclaimed Vancouver-based quartet—Bruno Hubert piano, André Lachance bass, Dylan van der Schyff drums—is known for it’s keen interactive sense, formidable improvisational skills and varied repertoire.
For the trio—Darren Radtke bass, Bernie Arai drums—Turner switches to piano and his style exhibits the quirky eccentricities of Thelonious Monk tempered with a broader harmonic palette of British pianist John Taylor. There is something distinctly contemporary about Turner’s vision, placing him squarely in the same territory as the Bad Plus and E.S.T.
