Steve Turre Is Cool

He plays conch shells.

He has a long braid, like a Manchu queue.

He wears a gold conch shell on a chain around his neck.

He has a metal conch shell welded to the bracing strut of his trombone, as a handhold.

Musicians in his Sanctified Shells band wear shirts made from fabric printed with conch shells.

Nice kicks, too.

A review of the Sanctified Shells performance at the Dakota will follow.


  1. And everyone should go watch it immediately.

  2. Don, I'll add your video to the review when I post that.
