Mike Miller and his Mike Miller Swingtet are well-known to aficionados of the Rochambeau music programs not only for their own extraordinary musicianship, but for seeking out and bringing to our audience local performers of the highest caliber. It’s always a surprise who the Swingtet has decided to jam with next, and this month it’s jazz harmonica virtuoso Mike Turk!
“My good friend Mike Turk is truly one of the world’s great harmonica virtuosos. Jazz, blues, and classics… his repertoire is endless! He can make his instrument sing with lyric beauty, or get ‘down right’ funky with the blues. Mike’s playing is always soulful and straight from the heart. Hearing him play throughout the years has always brought me endless pleasure. Ron Della Chiesa – WGBH Radio, Boston
