We are thrilled to welcome back Peter and Will Anderson for a return engagement at LIVE from SAC! Special guests to be announced.
Virtuosos on clarinet and saxophone, (New York Times) Peter and Will Anderson are one of the most extraordinary set of brothers performing music today. Known for their unique renditions of classic jazz songs and innovative original music, they hail from Washington, DC, but moved to New York City to attend Juilliard. Peter and Will have performed with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, Village Vanguard Orchestra, Jimmy Heath Big Band, Wycliffe Gordon, Cecile McLorin Salvant, Paquito DRivera, Kenny Barron, Bob Wilber, Albert Tootie Heath, live on Garrison Keillors Prairie Home Companion, and are featured on the 2014 Grammy Winning Soundrack of HBOs Boardwalk Empire with Vince Giordanos Nighthawks.
The Andersons have headlined at The Blue Note, Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Kennedy Center, New Orleans Jazz Festival, Sarasota Florida Jazz Festival, South Carolinas Jazz Corner, Seattles Triple Door, Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center, DCs Blues Alley, and Arizona Music Festival. Their ensemble has performed in over 40 U.S. States, toured Japan, and featured four times in NYCs famed Highlights in Jazz series, alongside Lou Donaldson, Ken Peplowski, and Warren Vache. As guest clinicians, Peter and Will have visited Temple University, Xavier University, University of South Florida, University of Central Oklahoma, Florida State University, Ohio State University, Michigan State University, University of Scranton and others.
Peter and Wills debut release from 2012, Correspondence, features Kenny Barron and was listed in Vanity Fair magazine alongside Miles Davis in Four New Releases to Make You Love Jazz. The Washington Post called their music, imaginatively unfolding in ways that consistently bring a fresh perspective to classic jazz. Their newest album, Deja Vu, features Albert Tootie Heath and was called a burner that reveals the bands cohesiveness and spirit by JazzTimes. In 2016, they performed live on Garrison Keillors Prairie Home Companion, playing a duo version of Lotus Blossom commemorating Billy Strayhorns centennial. Peter and Will endorse DAddario woodwind products and Selmer saxophones.
