Gavin Templeton

Gavin Templeton is a Los Angeles based saxophonist, woodwind player, composer and educator. Gavin spent his formative years in Reno, Nevada. He began studying classical violin at five years old, but switched to the alto saxophone a few years later.

Angel Bat Dawid, Fay Victor, Satoko Fujii and Clean Feed Releases

Read "Angel Bat Dawid, Fay Victor, Satoko Fujii and Clean Feed Releases" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

Risk-taking singer Fay Victor's powerhouse new album for ESP-Disk is called We've Had Enough, but the title could easily be used on Angel Bat Dawid's latest as well. It reflects some rather shabby treatment on a recent our in Europe. Her album Live sees and Tha Brothahood in full bore. Other new releases sampled come from ...

Vinny Golia Sextet: Trajectory

Read "Trajectory" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Jon Armstrong: Burnt Hibiscus

Read "Burnt Hibiscus" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Now firmly ensconced as the Director of Jazz Studies at Idaho State University, Jon Armstrong may just be a little homesick. Well, more than a little. After all, Pocatello is a far cry from the multi-cultural hustle and bustle of his hometown of Los Angeles. It's not surprising that Armstrong's new album, Burnt Hibiscus is a ...

Gavin Templeton: In Series

Read "In Series" reviewed by Luigi Sforza

Tenerezza e vigore, delicatezza e fermezza sostanziano la natura di In Series. Affrontando sistematicamente l'ascolto dell'album del sassofonista Gavin Templeton affiorano episodi autenticamente ispirati che, pur non prescindendo dai consolidati precetti che normano il jazz moderno, consegnano al fruitore momenti di indubbia raffinatezza musicale. “Karina," ad esempio, ha la sinuosità intrigante di una ballad tradizionale; ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
