Mike Turk was born in 1953, the son of a jazz bassist and vocalist. He started out playing a lot of rhythm and blues, and then in the 1960s he gravitated toward country music and sat in with folks like Bonnie Raitt and the Charlie Musselwhite Band. Discovering the possibilities of chromatic harmonica, Mike then spent two years at Berklee College of Music, where studied under Toots Thieleman and finally settled back into jazz.
