Saturday, July 16 at 7:30 p.m. — BRANDON — “Virtuosos on both clarinet and saxophone” (New York Times), Peter and Will Anderson are one of the most extraordinary set of brothers performing music today. They are known for their exciting arrangements of jazz classics and fresh original music. Since being recognized internationally as teenagers, the twins have attended New York’s Julliard and have headlined at The Blue Note, Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Kennedy Center, New Orleans Jazz Festival, and Sarasota Florida Jazz Festival, among others. Along with guitarist Alex Wintz, the trio performs at Brandon Music on July 16 at 7:30 p.m.
The renowned Quincy Jones has praise for the brothers: “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.”
Peter and Will’s 2012 release “Correspondence” features Kenny Barron and was listed in Vanity Fair magazine alongside Miles Davis in “Four New Releases to Make You Love Jazz.” Most recently, Peter and Will were featured on JAZZIZ Magazine’s Winter 2014 CD soundtrack.
The brothers have appeared with the Jimmy Heath Big Band, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Village Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, and Wycliffe Gordon Septet. Their ensemble has performed in over 35 U.S. States, toured Japan, and were featured four times in NYC’s famed “Highlights in Jazz” series, alongside legends Lou Donaldson, Paquito D’Rivera, and the Heath Brothers. As guest clinicians, Peter and Will have visited Temple University, Xavier University, University of Central Oklahoma, Florida State University, Ohio State University, Michigan State University and others.
