Add to Calendar 2014-09-26 8:00 pm 2014-09-26 Mark Turner Quartet at Wexner Center for the Arts One of the most productive and vital artists of the last dozen years...reason to take note of this agile quartet…they sounded lean and ready.”—New York Times

Saxophonist and composer Mark Turner is renowned for his rich dusky tone, exploratory intellect, and intimate expressive range on the tenor. Last seen at the Wexner Center with Israeli jazz guitar sensation Gilad Hekselman, Turner is now reestablishing himself as a band leader. He will soon release Lathe Of Heaven, his debut on ECM Records under his own name, following albums for the label with the cooperative trio Fly (with Larry Grenadier and Jeff Ballard) and appearances on key recordings by Billy Hart, Enrico Rava, and Stefano Bollani. Leading a quartet of kindred spirits, Turner intertwines musically with dynamic trumpeter Avishai Cohen as they play long, mesmerizing, introspective lines supported by the lithe rhythm section of bassist Joe Martin and drummer Gregory Hutchinson. Join us for the first jazz event of our 25th Anniversary Season, one that promises to deliver exactly the kind of jazz sparks you’ve come to expect at the Wex.
