Steve Turre
Few can match Steve Turré's skill as a trombonist. His technical mastery, which has seen him win five Down Beat polls, goes hand-in-hand with a deep respect for the music that has gone before him, and over the course of forty years he has honed his skills with some of the best. Since his formative experience as a teenager playing alongside the great saxophonist/flautist Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Turré has gone on to play with many artists including Ray Charles, B.B. King, Woody Shaw, Art Blakey, Dizzy Gillespie and McCoy Tyner.



His versatility has also seen him collaborate with Latin jazz greats like Tito Puente and Hilton Ruiz, and he can also be found playing in Cuban maestro Arturo O'Farrill's orchestra. Turré is also an acclaimed shellist, or conch player, extracting warm lyricism from this unusual instrument of the seabed. He could probably get a tune from an old kettle. The release of Rainbow People (HighNote, 2008), which brings together an outstanding group of musicians, shows Turré in all his musical guises, and finds him in irresistible form.



AAJ's Laotian correspondent Ian Patterson spoke with Turre about the recording of Rainbow People, his special relationship with trumpeter Woody Shaw, playing with Ray Charles, and more in his in-depth interview with the trombonist, Steve Turre: Shell 'n' 'Bone Man, published today at AAJ.
