Jim Turner plays so beautifully on this solo piano album that it's quite surprising that this was only his second recording as a leader, and his first in nearly a decade. On "Poet and Peasant Overture" and a couple of complex and picturesque Johnny Guarnieri numbers ("The Great Fred Harding Circus Shout" and "Ardelle"), Turner shows off the influence of Donald Lambert and the ability to stride classical-oriented themes
Pianist, composer, arranger, and producer Jim Turner was born and raised in LA, the son of classical pianist and teacher Robert E. Turner, which meant training on the piano began early in Turner's childhood. He went on to study jazz piano with both Johnny Guarnieri and Dick Cary, eventually graduating from the University of California at Santa Barbara with a degree in music composition and arranging. Turner continued to play solo, as well, a master of stride and other jazz styles on the piano, and his first solo album, Old Fashioned Love: A Tribute to James P. Johnson, appeared from Euphonic Sounds in 1981. Poet and Peasant followed in 1986 from Sacramento Jazz, with The Dazzler arriving from Klavier Records in 1995, and Old Fashioned Love from Box Office Records in 1999.
Full online text of The Poet And The Peasant by O. Henry. It was a living pastoral, full of the genuine breath of the fields, the song of birds, and the pleasant chatter of trickling streams. Several of us met over spaghetti and Dutchess County chianti, and swallowed indignation with slippery forkfuls.
