Ernest Turner Quartet

“A Truly fantastic listening experience” —The Jazz Page

“Can range from cutting edge current to old school funky and down home soulful…There are so many great pianists these days, but Ernest Turner is ready to take his place along side the best of them.” —Jazz Music Archives

Award-winning and GRAMMY-nominated pianist and composer Ernest Turner’s professional career has spanned 20 years, and has included performances and recordings with some of the biggest names in jazz and pop music, including Delfeayo Marsalis, John Legend, Raphael Saadiq, and the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra. His latest album, My Americana (2019), offers an understated “ode to black American music” rooted in an innovative reimagination of pieces by Stevie Wonder, Fats Waller, and others, alongside original compositions. In addition to an active performance schedule, he has conducted numerous music clinics and educational performances, and has served on the facultys of both Eastern Carolina University and University of Greensboro. Turner placed second in the 2019 Jacksonville Jazz Piano Competition, and his trio was selected as the winner of the 2019 DCJazzPrix Competition.
