His performance was regarded as an integral part of that ensemble’s sound.

Wynon Marsalis seemed particularly to value his breadth of experience, together with the Ellington connection.

Wynton Marsalis told one magazine: “It’s difficult to express in words the depth of respect and admiration we have for Joe. And it’s not just about music. It’s also a personal, a spiritual thing. His approach is timeless. And he’s the centre of our band.”

In addition Joe Temperley was an educator who taught at Juillard and the Manhattan School of Music.

Joe Temperley completely enthused by New York.

So he resolved to try his luck in the city, arriving in Manhattan with his wife in December 1965.

However, right after arriving in NY, there was no work of jazz for him.

He was working in a department store unwillingly.

Fortunately he was given the chance to joined the Woody Herman orchestra.

After two years he had a regular gig with the Thad Jones and Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra every Monday at the famous Village Vanguard club.

When Harry Carney passed away  in October 1974,Joe Temperley played “Sophisticated Lady” at Harry’s funeral.

Two weeks later he was working with Mercer Ellington Bandas as Harry Carney’s replacement.
