Jan 4, 2016

Trombone and conch shell player Steve Turre  has been a member of the Saturday Night Live band since 1984.  He also played in the Jazz Messengers, the band led by legendary drummer Art Blakey.  On this edition of GLT Jazz Next, Turre says it was a decade earlier during his time in the Ray Charles Band where he learned the importance of of being a professional, and the importance of "giving your all" every night.
