Biography

Photo of Mike Turk Jazz Quartet

This group travels and performs throughout the Boston and New England region at concert, club and private venues.
We specialize in songs of the American Songbook treated as swing, fast tempo hard-bop, light swing and smooth ballads. Also included are favorites from the Brazilian bossa-Nova era.

Mike Turk is a no-nonsense musician and the harmonica is his life. [He is] one of a rare breed who started out with the blues harp and went on to get an enviable technique on the chromatic. His home base is bebop with a healthy swinging approach. He shows familiarity with some interesting melodic scales. [He makes] a harmonica statement that should reach out beyond the harmonica audience. . .Turk is a fiery player. . . . came out of the bluesharp and assimilated the chromatic quite fluently. . . . knows his changes and aims for swing! . . . Go for it Mike!”
