”Virtuosos on clarinet and saxophone,” (New York Times) Peter and Will Anderson are one of the most extraordinary set of brothers performing music today. They’re known for their exciting arrangements of jazz classics and fresh original music. Hailing from Washington, DC, they were recognized internationally as teenagers by Betty Carter’s Jazz Ahead, the Next Generation Jazz Orchestra, and NFAA Young Arts. Endorsees of Selmersaxophones and D’Addario reeds, Peter and Will attended Juilliard in New York City, where they currently reside. They’ve appeared with the Jimmy Heath Big Band, Jazz @ Lincoln Center Orchestra, Village Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, and Wycliffe Gordon Septet.
Peter and Will have headlined at The Blue Note, Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Kennedy Center, New Orleans Jazz Festival, Sarasota Florida Jazz Festival, South Carolina’s Jazz Corner, Seattle’s Triple Door, Miami-Dade’s Cultural Arts Center, DC’s Blues Alley, and Arizona Music Festival. Their ensemble has performed in over 35 U.S. States, toured Japan, and 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 South Florida, University of Central Oklahoma, Florida State University, Ohio State University, Michigan State University and others.
Peter and Will’s 2012 release for Smalls records, 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 are featured on JAZZIZ Magazine’s Winter 2014 CD Soundtrack. Their recent release, Reed Reflections, was called by the Washington Post, “imaginatively unfolding in ways that consistently bring a fresh perspective to classic jazz tunes.” Peter and Will’s newest album, DejaVu, features Albert “Tootie” Heath, and was called “a burner that reveals the band’s cohesiveness and spirit” by Mike Joyce in JazzTimes.
