Album Notes
John Turner has been playing music for over two thirds of his life. After a full course of formal training, he joined the graduate school of the road, performing with funk, rock and jazz groups for over 10 years. Beginning in 1990, Turner was a key member of 10 Foot Pole, one of the most popular regional touring acts throughout the Southeast and Midwest. He also led an acid jazz band called Lily Pons and a soul jazz organ trio in the vein of Jack McDuff and Groove Holmes. The bands were all very active, playing over one thousand shows and releasing 7 highly regarded albums of original music. During this time Turner also received a prestigious Kentucky Arts Council fellowship grant for music composition. His style and reputation led to national touring offers with BMG's classic lounge act Love Jones. Upon arriving in New York City Turner toured with Sony Records recording artists Ivy. He also appeared in a Miramax produced movie "Since You've Been Gone" which premiered on ABC television and continues to be shown regularly on various cable channels.

2001 saw the release of John Turner's first solo album "Horn Resounding" which received a favorable review from Jazz Times magazine. He also led the groundbreaking electronic jazz group Baraka Orchestra, often performing at packed underground Brooklyn party venues and collaborating live and on record with legendary figures like Umar Bin Hassan of The Last Poets. During this period Turner became involved in performing solo shows of his original music at such venues as The New Museum, Halcyon and others.

2003 found John exploring a new interest, the classic jazz of 1930's and 40's figures such as Fats Waller, Hoagy Carmichael and others. This music led him to a new performance venue, the streets and parks of New York. Street performing allows John to present music he loves to a wide-ranging audience not limited to age or willingness to buy alcohol. He performed his new act nearly every day of summer 2003 in Central Park. He was included in a French public television feature on the park and in an interview with the Voice of America radio network that played all over the world.

Currently, John is performing regularly at the South Street Seaport in downtown Manhattan. He continues to work on his original compositions in his spare time.

cd recieved ok fantastic listening!
CD is good arrived in good health i have played it over and over.Well done


Such a treat to hear him play live and then take a bit of him home. Transports to another time and place, not to mention the unbelievable horn playing.

Genuine beauty
Genuine and solid. How often does a CD transport you to, not only another place, but another season also? Inspired by his summertime Central Park performances, JT sends listeners to a sidewalk cafe, a quiet street in the evening, and a picnic by the pond. You might even picture a hot dog vendor in the background or children running through fountains as old folks talk on a nearby bench. These old standards sparkle. Lovely, honest, and a joy to hear. Keep up the true work, JT.


JT beathes new life into every song, be it original or otherwise...extremely enj

I'm not usually a fan of street artists but these tunes really captured the moment.
