Brad Turner Quartet
Small Wonder
Maximum Jazz

A delightful sense of comfortable familiarity suffuses Canadian trumpeter Brad Turner’s quartet, the result of 14 years of collaboration. In eight original tunes that showcase each band member in turn, Turner’s group brings a beautiful, velvety texture to slower numbers and a spiky thrust to more uptempo outings. Turner drives the band with a distinctive voice, clearly articulating each note as he builds up a head of steam and launches into the upper register, blending a personal sound with a communal atmosphere.
