Milton Turner is a jazz drummer.
After graduating from Pearl High School, he attended Tennessee State University, where he coincided with Hank Crawford, who he later recommended to join him in Ray Charles' band when he took over from William Peeples in the late 1950s.
In 1962, he was a member of Phineas Newborn's trio with Leroy Vinnegar, on whose solo albums he would later appear, and in the early 1960s, Turner also recorded with Teddy Edwards.
