Brad Turner

”It's That Time” is the Brad Turner Quartet's first release on Cellar Live Records; although Brad has performed as a sideman on many of the releases on this label, this is his first as a leader. A live recording, this record captures the quartet at it's best - having played together for eighteen years now, the group has developed a level of musical empathy rarely heard in modern mainstream jazz today.

Brad Turner's phenomenal talents as a trumpeter, pianist, drummer and composer make him one of Canada§s most-in- demand musicians. Brad has performed and/or recorded with such artists as Joe Lovano, Kenny Wheeler, Michael Moore, Reneé Rosnes, Achim Kaufmann, John Scofield, Ingrid Jensen, Dylan van der Schyff, Mike Murley, Mark Helias, Charles McPherson and Gary Bartz. Brad's groups have opened for McCoy Tyner, Roy Haynes, Wayne Shorter, Clarke Terry and Diana Krall.
