He then participated in “Jazz for Young People” at JALC and conducted master classes in various high schools and universities such as N.Y.U.

Charles’ passion to bring swing and jazz to listeners of all generations and backgrounds proceeds through his new band and project Charles Turner & Uptown Swing.
