About This Episode

Today we’re sitting down with one of the groovers and shakers behind the UK’s funk bass scene… Paul Turner!

In the hierarchy of Jamiroquai bass players, Paul was the first to really revolutionise the bands old-school bass sound since Jay Kay began a new chapter without Stuart Zender. Having joined right at the beginning of the group’s promo run for 2005’s Dynamite album, we all looked on with great interest as Paul was brought into the fold. Luckily for Jay Kay, he has without question earned the right to put his own stamp on one of the most coveted bass gigs in popular music.

Outside of Jamiroquai, Paul has enjoyed an incredible career as a first-call session player, providing the low-end for the likes of Take That, Annie Lennox, Omar, Ruby Turner, Bryan Ferry, Kylie Minogue and Tom Jones. Recently, he’s been keeping busy with UK funk outfit, Brother Strut.
