WILL ANDERSON “Virtuoso on clarinet and saxophone” (New York Times), Will Anderson was raised in Washington D.C. and moved to New York City to attend The Juilliard School. He’s performed with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, Wycliffe Gordon, Cecile McLorin Salvant, Paquito D’Rivera, Wynton Marsalis, and can be heard on the 2014 Grammy-winning soundtrack of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. Along with his twin brother Peter, he’s headlined at The Blue Note, Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Kennedy Center, New Orleans Jazz Festival, and live on Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Companion. Vanity Fair magazine listed them alongside Miles Davis in “Four New Releases to Make You Love Jazz,” and the Washington Post says they “consistently bring a fresh perspective to classic jazz.” Last year, the Andersons raised $25,000 establishing the Joe Temperley Juilliard Student Scholarship Fund in honor of their late great saxophone mentor.
