A ThinkTank Multimedia Productions Artist, The Temprees are currently on the ThinkTank/TenVa Label. With a musical history that stands the test of time, The Temprees' music consists of many styles. This top R&B/Soul group was originally comprised of three Memphis natives. Jasper "Jabo" Phillips (leader), Harold "Scotty" Scott and Deljuan "Del" Calvin. Blending their voices in song as teenagers, all met during junior high school. Officially formed in 1970, The Temprees were signed to We Produce, a Stax subsidiary, and recorded several notable recordings during the first half of the 1970s. Phillips's falsetto was usually in the lead during the performances. The Temprees were at their best singing emotional love ballads, backed occasionally by horns and strings. Their debut album, Love Men, has been re-issued with additional selections such as Dedicated to the One I Love. The title cut was their biggest hit, a remake of The Five Royales/The Shirelles standard, made the R&B charts in 1972. Other highlights of this CD include: If I Could Say What's on My Mind, I Love You, You Love Me, I Love, I Love, You Make Me Feel So Good Baby, and Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight. Demonstrating why The Temprees were so popular, this fast paced set is most appealing. Due to the success of their sensual vocals, The Temprees were nicknamed Love Men. Love Maze, The Temprees' next recording, includes the emotional title cut and remakes of some popular tunes, a few of which are: At Last, People Make the World Go Round, It's Christmas Time Again and Let Me Be the One. With selections from both of their We Produce projects, the Concord/Fantasy catalog includes The Best of The Temprees. The group switched to the Epic label, and in 1976 had a minor hit with I Found Love on a Disco Floor. The Temprees performed with all four original members until the death of Jasper "Jabo" Phillips in 2001. The three remaining members, Deljuan "Del" Calvin, Jerry, "JC" Calvin and Harold "Scotty" Scott, continue to perform their passionate sound.
