Young jazz vocalist and bandleader Charles Turner III—winner of the first-annual Duke Ellington Center for the Arts vocal competition, among other accolades—has quickly made his mark in the New York City jazz scene, playing regularly at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s late-night dance sessions, Ginny’s Supper Club, Smoke, and more. Turner slides effortlessly from crooning jazz melodies to hard swinging standards to down-and-out blues, all backed by a flawless five-piece rhythm and horn section. There’s no time like the present to hear from the new generation of swing ambassadors.
