”Virtuosos on clarinet and saxophone,” (New York Times) Bethesda, Maryland natives Peter and Will Anderson at a very young age were drawn to the music of Charlie Parker and Duke Ellington. They toured the United Kingdom at age 15, and after several years of study with saxophonist Paul Carr, Peter and Will attended Juilliard in New York City, where they currently reside.
Their expertise has made them saxophonists of choice for Wycliffe Gordon, the Village Vanguard Orchestra, and Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra. They’ve headlined at Jazz at Lincoln Center, D.C.’s Blues Alley, the New Orleans Jazz Festival, Sarasota, Florida Jazz Festival, South Carolina’s Jazz Corner, Seattle’s Triple Door, Iowa’s Bix Beiderbecke Festival, Miami’s SMDCAC Arts Center, and Phoenix’s The Nash.
Their ensemble has performed in 26 U.S. States and toured Japan. Peter and Will released Correspondence, featuring Kenny Barron, which was listed by Vanity Fair magazine in “Four New Releases to Make You Love Jazz.” Featuring guitarist Alex Wintz, the Anderson’s Trio recently released Reed Reflections, which the Washington Post calls “imaginatively unfolding in ways that consistently bring a fresh perspective to classic jazz tunes.”
