AXIOM AXIOM

Self-Evident Truth in both concept and application best describes the realization of the musical goals of brothers Peter Templer and Phil Templer. The road towards that realization has been one of many twists and turns often encountered by professional musicians striving to explore their own artistic expressions, while at the same time responding to the ever changing demands of both the national and international marketplace.

​Through AXIOM, Peter and Phil feel that they are indeed establishing their own special place on the contemporary music scene. When recently asked “What is AXIOM all about and what are you trying to say, musically speaking?” Peter responds, 'As the name implies, this is the self-evident truth in music for us! I grew up playing tunes by Jr. Walker, James Brown, the Allman Brothers, Jimi Hendrix, etc. I love that stuff and always will. Then,. put that together with my affinity for Jazz and Latin music through people such as Miles, Wes, Bird and Jobim. Now I have this fantastic opportunity to express all of that here with AXIOM!” Phil adds, “There's that certain spark of creative spontaneity inherent in all of the music we love and that's what I'd like to think we're achieving in AXIOM. There's a strong element of teamwork here as all the players get the chance to really be involved from performing as well as from a compositional standpoint”.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
