JazzBuffalo in collaboration with MusicalFare Premier Cabaret, are excited to announce the highly acclaimed jazz duo of Pete and Will Anderson will be performing on May 19th at the MusicalFare Premier Cabaret Lounge beginning at 8pm. Pete and Will Anderson are extraordinary musicians performing on clarinet, saxophone, and flute.
Their unique style of playing have given them invitations to tour with Jimmy Heath and the Village Vanguard Orchestra. The duo has performed concerts at Jazz at the Lincoln Center. In March of 2016, they will be featured in a special rememberance of Benny Goodman in "Moonglow: The Magic Of Benny Goodman" at Jazz at the Linocln Center.
Both are accomplished musicians who studied at Julliard in New York City. Currently, they are touring internationally – most recently in Japan.
Here is what the press says about Pete and Will Anderson:
“PETE AND WILL ANDERSON ARE VIRTUOSOS ON BOTH CLARINET AND SAXOPHONE”
“[THEIR] SAXOPHONES AND CLARINETS ELEGANTLY CONVERGE, CONVERSE AND ENGAGE IN DELIGHTFUL COUNTERPOINT…THE ARRANGEMENTS, IMAGINATIVELY UNFOLDING IN WAYS THAT CONSISTENTLY BRING A FRESH PERSPECTIVE TO CLASSIC POP AND JAZZ TUNES”
“TOE-TAPPING, HEART-LIFTING JAZZ”
They have made a big fan out of Quincy Jones as well:
“YOU DUDES ARE THE FUTURE! YOU ALL HAVE MADE MY SOUL SMILE, AND YOU MADE A 78 YEAR-OLD EX-BE-BOPPER SMILE LIKE A FOX EATIN’ SAUERKRAUT”
They will be coming to Buffalo as the PWA Trio with guitarist Alex Wintz. A fantastic blending of songs from the Great American Songbook as well as modern jazz influence – taking you back to an era when the sound of the clarinet meant the sound of jazz.
Here is an introductory video about the twin brothers, which will have you undoubtedly enthused to get tickets early:
