Myron Walden: Eclectic Reedman
In fact, Turner was sharing a house in Brooklyn with Joshua Redmanand drummer Jorge Rossy. "With Turner and Redman in the same house, I wondered: Is this contagious? Turner had some range, and I kept asking 'how do you do that?' I figured I should live there, and catch it."
But in the end, it came down to "a lot of trial and error, and I'm still in that mode today." In one way or another, they would keep telling him that "you've got to hear it."

You eventually hear it, you do it. They were telling me the truth."
