His other early interests included graphics and visual #art #writing #dance puppetry, #painting sculpting, and #poetry. He studied at The #ArtInstituteofChicago and began touring with various local midwest "ghost big bands" #LesElgart #WoodyHerman as well as playing with small local jazz and rock groups. After switching to tenor saxophone in high school, Klemmer participated in the #Chicago jazz scene, playing with commercial small groups and big bands while leading his own groups and touring He performed at the Newport and #Monterey Jazz Festivals, Antibes Jazz Festival, Carnegie Hall, Tanglewood, and Montreux Jazz Festival plus TV shows the Midnight Special and Rock Concert. Klemmer has composed all songs for many of his albums, amassing a large and valuable publishing catalog, but he has also collaborated and co-written musically and as lyricist with many pop songwriters, such as David Batteau, with the UK hit "Walk In Love", recorded by #TheManhattanTransfer Danny O'Keefe, Clint Holmes, Pamela Oland, and many others. After another of his many controversial sabbaticals, he again changed musical direction by then moving to ABC/MCA Records briefly returning to his early R&B & pop roots. Klemmer then went on to earn massive crossover appeal with his now landmark series of the classic #Touch recordings. Klemmer and the "Touch" series of recordings are regarded by many as paving the way and being "the founder" of the current #SmoothJazz genre some anointing him #TheAmbassadorofCool His continuous fast changing of musical directions throughout his career created some controversy, confusion and false speculative motivational assumptions and judgements from his primarily earlier jazz purist audience, primarily, with the now historic "Touch" series of recordings.
