For the past 25 years, saxophonist and clarinetist Joe Temperley has been the heart and soul of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. The depth conveyed through his warm tone has moved countless audiences to tears. The profundity of Temperley’s presence is rooted in an illustrious career, which spans several decades. Temperley, now 85, has performed with the orchestras of Humphrey Lyttelton, Woody Herman, Thad Jones-Mel Lewis, Clark Terry, Joe Henderson, and most notably, Duke Ellington, as well as in the Broadway musical Sophisticated Ladies. In honor of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra’s elder statesman, band mates will debut arrangements of Temperley’s Ellington favorites as well as his original music. Managing & Artistic Director Wynton Marsalis will present a three-movement concerto, written as a dedication to Temperley, about whose playing Marsalis says: “There is no greater sound on earth.”
