Chanteur US né le 18 Mai 1911, originaire de Kansas City (Missouri), Joe Turner a débuté en 1938, mais il obtient son premier succès qu'en 1951 chez Atlantic Records. On le considère comme le prototype du "Blues Shouter", en fait, c'était un précurseur du Rock 'n' Roll. Big Joe Turner est mort, terrassé par une crise cardiaque, le 24 Novembre 1985.
