John Turner

Bass - Jazz Ensemble Instructor

John Turner.jpg

A veteran of the New England jazz scene, bassist John Turner has performed and recorded with just about everybody--specifically the Either/Orchestra, Charlie Kohlhase, Scott Hamilton, Roswell Rudd, Lee Konitz, the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, members of Ornette Coleman's band, the White Heat Swing Orchestra, and also is a member of Roomful of Blues, a five time Grammy nominated band.

John favors a relaxed, playing-oriented approach to teaching jazz ensembles at the JPMC. With an emphasis on straight-ahead jazz and bebop, John's teaching style is low-key, amiable, and always full of amusing (and instructive) anecdotes from his years of experience as a working musician.
