Turning Point biography
Founded in 1976 - Disbanded in 1980

Turning Point were a late 1970s fusion band from the UK. The band was formed by Jeff Clyne (bass) and Brian Miller (keyboards), who had previously played together in Isotope, and Pepi Lemer (wordless vocals). Also in the band were David Tidball (saxes) and Paul Robinson (drums). They recorded two albums: Creatures of the Night (1977) and Silent Promise (1978), both on the Gull label.
They toured the UK, including supporting National Health in 1977. Their final tour in 1980 included Allan Holdsworth and Neil Ardley.
P. Lemer was the then-wife (later divorced) of Pete Lemer and went on to become a vocal coach, including working with The Spice Girls. Robinson later worked with Nina Simone. Miller worked on the musical Cats for several years.

Turning Point Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by fenman

5 stars Including two members of UK fusion band Isotope (Jeff Clyne and Brian Miller), Turning Point released two albums (1977, 1978) on the same label (Gull). Without the "fire and fury" of Gary Boyle's guitar (wonderful though it was) Turning Point offered us melodic jazz/fusion in the same area as Ian Carr/Nucleus and, to some extent the "Canterbury sound" bands of that decade. (Indeed Clyne also played in Canterbury scene band Gilgamesh). Featuring the wordless singing of Pepi Lemer, the music is at times light and airy, sometimes thoughtful and reflective, always imspiring.

This is the first of their two albums, which are similar and together offer nearly an hour and half of excellent music. In fact both were reissued as a 2CD pack by Vocalion in 2009 (the year Clyne died) and are still available. First class.

Thanks to alucard for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
