Biography

Fromwikipedia

Joe Turner (November 3, 1907 – July 21, 1990) was an American jazz pianist.[1] Joseph H. Turner was born in Baltimore, Maryland, United States. One of the masters of the stride piano style associated with Harlem, New York City, Turner got his first big musical break in 1928 with his hiring by the Benny Carter Orchestra. Another break was his work accompanying Adelaide Hall, sometimes alongside Art Tatum, in the early 1930s. He also played with Louis Armstrong. After World War II, he settled in Europe, living in Paris from 1962. He played at La Calavados, a nightclub situated near the Champs Elysees until his death from a heart attack in 1990, at the age of 82.[2]
