GUIDO BASSO (trumpeter, flugelhornist, harmonica-player, arranger, composer, conductor) was born September 27, 1937 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. He was only nine years old when he began playing the trumpet, becoming recognized as a prodigy while studying at Montreal’s Conservatoire de musique du Quebec. He was just a teenager when he was already becoming prominent on the Montreal club scene, where singer Vic Damone first heard him and took him on international tour with him for two years.

In 1958 he joined singer Pearl Bailey and her bandleader husband, famed drummer Louis Bellson, touring North America with them for three years before moving to Toronto to join the busy studio and television scene there. His playing career as a stand-out sideman and leader, soared, and he became one of the biggest jazz names in the country, and beginning in 1975, frequently organized and led big band concerts at Toronto’s Canadian National Exhibition featuring jazz luminaries including Dizzy Gillespie, Quincy Jones, Woody Herman, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, and Count Basie. He can be heard on hundreds of record albums, playing and recording with stars from Buddy Rich and Oliver Jones to Carol Welsman and Diana Kralll. He is currently featured on vocalist Diana Panton’s latest release “Pink”.

Formed in October 1998 to record an improvisational set in Montreal's Maison de la Culture Frontenac (which would result in the album, Year of the Tiger, released in 1999), the Dave Turner Quartet brought together some of Canada's most experienced jazz musicians. Saxophonist Dave Turner and pianist Jean Beaudet formed the home-town core of this group, aided by Toronto musicians Barry Elmes on drums and Steve Wallace on bass. The resulting sound was heavily steeped in bop and swing, with the bulk of the songs featuring Turner's compositions and arrangements.
