Steve Turre Sextet
"Wisdom comes from the older ones, but the younger ones cheer them on", says Steve Turre about his band "Generations". Turre, born in 1948 to Mexican-American parents, promotes the great age differences in his sextet, in which son Orion Turre drums and Wallace Roney Jr. honours the legacy of his father and great trumpeter of the same name. Steve Turre is not only one of the best trombonists of the last 50 years, but also one of the most versatile. He came into contact with blues and mariachi music at an early age, later devoted himself to Afro-Cuban sounds and played with legends like Art Blakey. In the seventies, the Californian discovered the singing sound of snail horns. Turre always carries sea shells in various sizes with him - a beguiling sound that carries this fine bop and straight-ahead jazz into higher spheres.
