Ben Turner Quartet Plays The Music of Grant Green
February 17, 2019 @ 3:00 pm
Preservation New Jersey and the New Jersey Jazz Society present the Ben Turner Quartet in their first performance of Sunday matinee jazz at the 1867 Sanctuary. Guitarist Ben Turner and his quartet celebrates the life of guitar legend, Grant Green, by playing classic songs from his catalog.
The Ben Turner Quartet features Ben Turner (Guitar), Dan Monaghan (Drums), Nathaniel Hawk (Piano), and David Brodie (Bass).
Ben Turner is a guitarist based in the Philadelphia/South Jersey area where he maintains a busy schedule as leader and sideman. He currently attends the Boyer College of Music at Temple University in North Philadelphia, where he studies jazz performance. While there, he has had the privilege and opportunity to work with renowned faculty such as Peter Bernstein, Director of Jazz Studies at Temple University Terell Stafford, Tim Warfield, Dick Oatts, Dave Wong, Warren Wolf, among others.
Mansfield, PA, native Dan Monaghan is one of the busiest drummers in the Philadelphia area. After studying classical percussion for eight years he went on to earn a Bachelors of Music in jazz studies from Temple University. Since then he has performed with some of the top names in jazz, including Eric Alexander, Peter Bernstein, Uri Caine, and Randy Brecker. In addition, he has recorded with Dick Oatts, Garry Dial, Joe Magnarelli, Jimmy Bruno, Elio Villafranca, Joanna Pascale, John Vanore & Abstract Truth, Larry McKenna, Jon Lundbom & Big Five Chord, Norman David, Tom Tallitsch, Mike Kennedy, and many others.
Nathaniel Hawk is a pianist and music educator with strong ties to the Philadelphia tri-state area. His musical journey began at a young age as he began taking piano lessons and developing classical technique. Nathaniel attended Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts, where he focused on classical piano performance, music theory, composition, conducting and, eventually, found a love of jazz. Nathaniel graduated from The University of the Arts in 2018 with a bachelor’s degree in Jazz Piano Performance.
David Brodie started playing the electric bass at the age of thirteen and first took on the upright bass at nineteen while enrolled at Berklee College of Music. After a year in Spain, he returned to his native Philadelphia where he quickly joined up with guitarist Jimmy Bruno, with whom he played for the next several years. From that point, his reputation well established, Brodie has enjoyed a busy playing and recording career and has performed with some of the world’s greatest jazz musicians including Kurt Rosenwinkel, Chris Potter and Randy Brecker while performing regularly with some of Philadelphia’s finest such as Larry McKenna, John Swana, and Joanna Pascale.
