Mark Turner

It's late, and I'm tired, but I am listening to Mark Turner's debut album, Yam Yam. It carries me along is all I am prepared to say. Kurt Rosenwinkel plays guitar, Brad Mehldau on piano, Larry Grenadier on bass, Jorge Rosy on drums, and Seamus Blake and Terrance Dean wield two more tenors. It occurs to me at this midnight moment, that what I love best about jazz is the shift between instruments along the same musical theme. Here is a taste:
