MARK TURNER Mark Turner (Warner Bros.) Whether breathing new life into a well-worn standard like ”Autumn in New York” or skillfully penetrating the open byways of an Ornette Coleman tune, tenor saxophonist Turner uses his major-label debut to cement a sterling reputation already firmly established among fellow musicians. Relying on shrewd phrasing and a warming tone where others would lean on flash, Turner uses understatement to score big. B+
