“Gavin Templeton has captured another alluring vision of the ever-evolving sound of L.A.” - Chris Barton, Los Angeles Times 

"Templeton boasts an assured yet adventurous voice, sometimes with nods to Ornette Coleman and Henry Threadgill." - Josef Woodard, DownBeat Magazine

Gavin Templeton is a Los Angeles based saxophonist, woodwind player and composer. He has been recognized as "a pivotal force in the L.A. progressive jazz scene" (Glenn Astarita, All About Jazz) for both his personal contributions to new music as well as his collaborations with a variety of internationally recognized performers and composers.  Templeton has recorded alongside Nels Cline (Rolling Stone's 100 Greatest Guitarists), avant-garde jazz legend Vinny Golia, and Grammy nominated big band leader Alan Ferber among many others. As a solo artist and composer, Templeton has released three different albums over the last three years to critical acclaim, and, as a performer, Templeton is quickly becoming an in-demand concert artist. He will be performing as a featured artist at the 2014 Angel City Jazz Festival and at the 2014 Monterey Jazz Festival with the Daniel Rosenboom Quintet.
