‘John Turville is one of the UK’s most imaginative and versatile pianists... one of the brightest young stars in the UK jazz firmament’ - Ian Mann

‘Turville's seamless contrapuntal virtuosity and brain-hurting collisions of rhythm... mines just as deep a seam of musical ideas as Brad Mehldau’ - John Fordham
