Time:          7:30 pm

Robert Turner, an extraordinary young pianist who brings his audiences to their feet; most likely one of the most soulful musicians to ever witness.  This accomplished International recording artist plays a “Erroll Garner’s Concert-By-the-Sea” tribute.   Songs include “Misty”, “Dreamy”, “I’ll Remember April” and Many others.

Robert is a well accomplished pianist with many credits to his name.  His style is like Errol Garner, Gene Harris and Keith Jarrett.  He plays many jazz standards and popular songs in his own style.  His roots are those “gospel piano chops” from the Baptist Church.  This is where Robert cut his teeth as a pianist.  Along with this, he got his technical training from LA College and Sacramento State University.

Robert currently resides in China and performs with the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, as well as playing jazz clubs internationally.
