In a career that spans two decades and encompasses a broad array of musical ventures, saxophonist Mark Turner has emerged as a towering presence in the jazz community. With a distinctive, personal tone, singular improvisational skills and an innovative, challenging compositional approach, he has earned a far-reaching reputation as one of the most original and influential musical forces in jazz, and has been lauded by the New York Times as a “standard bearer” of the genre.
A rising star in international jazz circles, guitarist Mikkel Ploug has been called “the latest sensation in European jazz guitar” by Barcelona’s La Vanguardia. A force on the European scene for years and a collaborator with Turner for the last decade, Ploug’s style has been hailed in European press as “magnificent modernism.”
The trio is described as having “a talkative style that’s plenty charismatic…rich textures and sharp melodicism keep the ear riveted throughout…”
