We are pleased to announce a special guest artist for this Sunday’s 9:15 imprints celebration. Paul Klemperer is originally from Boston, where he studied with jazz legends Archie Shepp, Max Roach and Ray Copeland. Since moving to Austin in 1982, he has worked with such blues greats as Marcia Ball and members of the Fabulous Thunderbirds. Paul earned his master’s degree in Ethnomusicology at the University of Texas in 1991. He teaches private and group classes in clarinet & saxophone, jazz history & theory, and issues in music & culture.
Paul has produced three CD’s representing the three groups he leads: PK Sax (original jazz and world music), The Klemperer Group (acid jazz & experimental), and Manteca Beat (classic R&B and international cabaret). He has toured nationally and internationally for over 20 years, and continues to divide his time between Austin and the road, bringing his soulful sax sound across the U.S., Latin America, Europe and Asia.
