Blog | In Memoriam: Joe Temperley

Joe Temperley

"RIP, a wonderful baritone player and good human being.  I had the good fortune of seeing him play with Wynton Marsalis many times.  He also played with Duke Ellington.  I will never forget riding next to Joe on a bus from the Great Wall in China to a hotel in Beijing, China."

New Haven Artist Creates Tribute Mural to Jazz Legend - Emissourian - Mobile Adv

"A tribute mural created by New Haven artist Ray Harvey of legendary Jazz trumpeter Clark Terry, who passed away in February at the age of 94, will be dedicated Saturday, April 2, at 4 p.m., as part of the Murals on Broadway Public Art Program.

The mural, located outside at 7714 South Broadway, St. Louis, is a montage tribute to Terry, who was born and raised in the Carondelet neighborhood but who went around the world with his musical talent. He played with Count Basie and Duke Ellington, was a mentor to Miles Davis and has sold more jazz records than any other musician.Harvey will be a speaker at the dedication, and there will be a musical performance by the Champian Fulton Quartet, including Steven and Champian Fulton, who were close personal friends with and inspired by Clark Terry’s music and life.Harvey’s mural is the seventh in a series commissioned by the Carondelet Community Betterment Federation for its Murals on Broadway program."
