About the Album

"King's Canyon" is one the four tracks that comprise The California Suite, on Axiom's album Starburst. Inspired by band leaders Phil and Pete Templer's love and respect for some of California’s most iconic landscapes, "King's Canyon" captures the dynamic and dramatic nature of California’s fantastic natural world. This majestic valley emulates the raging Kings River via a brisk Latin-Jazz composition featuring Alan Palmer on Soprano Sax and Pete Templer on Guitar. Phil Templer's drum and percussion work also play an especially prominent role on "Kings Canyon."

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
