“One of the finest trombonists of the late 20th & early 21st centuries”- All Music Guide.
Steve Turre has worked with some of modern jazz’s greatest masters, including Art Blakey,
McCoy Tyner, Woody Shaw, Rahsaan Roland Kirk.
Turre has his own voice on the trombone and also diverges from the mainstream by
performing on conch shells carefully cut to specific pitches.
He has been a multi-year winner in both the Readers’ and Critics’ polls in
JazzTimes, Downbeat, and Jazziz for Best Trombone and for Best Miscellaneous Instrumentalist (conch shells).
