Trombone great Steve Turre, perennial poll winner on both trombone and sea shells, celebrates the release of a beautiful new album, The Very Thought of You. Turre is a jazz master whose illustrious career includes work alongside music legends such as Ray Charles, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, and Woody Shaw and he is a 30+ year mainstay of the Saturday Night Live Band. On everything from swinging classic bop lines on trombone or conjuring Rahsaan on shells over a deep groove, Steve Turre is a true jazz original. Rolling Stonesays, “The jazz world needs more Steve Turres. A powerful technician with a soulful tone and quick wit, Turre is perhaps the leading trombonist of this generation.” His quintet will feature two of his bandmates from the recording in legendary bassist Buster Williams and drummer Willie Jones III, as well as fellow SNL band member Ron Blake on saxophone and Isaiah Thompson on piano.
