Mark Turner, SOLOS: The Jazz Sessions
2012 | Label: Original Spin Music / A-Train

Mark Turner SOLOS the jazz sessions

DiamondKing

Mark is such a fluid and beautiful player - he's a huge influence on a lot of contemporary jazz players and it's easy to see why. His improvisations are built up here like sonic towers, moving slowly up into the sky. This is truly incredible music and the clearest view into Mark's thought process I've ever heard. An absolute must for musicians and for anyone who appreciates brilliant music.
