Presented as Jazz in the ‘Hoods as part of the DC Jazz Festival.
Mark Turner’s elegant, abstract and thoughtful playing has been much remarked on by his contemporaries. Brad Meldau has noted that Mark “doesn’t court the theatrics associated with his instrument… (He is) playing with a direct candor usually reserved for older players.” And the older players, too, have been taking note. Lee Konitz noted, “I think Mark is a very serious contender. He’s really playing lines up there as Warne Marsh could do – and Mark uses that register much more than Warne did.”
