“Our beloved mentor Joe Temperley was a role model in the jazz community for his elegance, honesty, and commitment to his students. We want to celebrate these values and carry on his legacy for generations to come.” – Peter and Will Anderson
Saxophonists and twin brothers Peter and Will Anderson recently raised over $20,000 for a Joe Temperley Scholarship for saxophone students at The Juilliard School, and they now celebrate the release of their new album, Blues for Joe. The album is dedicated to the late Joe Temperley – the Andersons’ longtime mentor and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra’s beloved baritone saxophonist. The Andersons will perform some of Temperley’s favorite songs, including Billy Strayhorn’s “Lush Life,” Ray Noble’s “The Very Thought of You,” and Duke Ellington’s “In a Mellow Tone.” They will also debut several of their original compositions dedicated to Temperley. Join us in celebrating the life and artistry of Joe Temperley, and witness his impact on the new generation of jazz musicians.
