”Virtuosos on clarinet and saxophone,” (New York Times) Maryland natives Peter and Will Anderson were drawn to jazz at a very young age. While still teenagers, they toured the United Kingdom, performed on Capitol Hill, and were featured on television. After studying with saxophonist Paul Carr, Peter and Will attended Juilliard in New York City, where they currently reside. They’ve performed with jazz greats James Moody, Hank Jones, Clark Terry, Frank Wess and Benny Golson.
Peter and Will have headlined at The Blue Note, Jazz at Lincoln Center, D.C.’s The Kennedy Center, the New Orleans Jazz Festival, Sarasota, Florida Jazz Festival, South Carolina’s Jazz Corner, Seattle’s Triple Door, Iowa’s Bix Beiderbecke Festival, Miami-Dade’s Cultural Arts Center, and the Arizona Music Festival. Their ensemble has performed in 30 U.S. States, toured Japan, and been featured four times in the famed “Highlights in Jazz” series, alongside legends Lou Donaldson, Jimmy Heath, and Wycliffe Gordon.
Peter and Will’s 2012 debut release, Correspondence, featuring Kenny Barron, was chosen by 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. Outfitted with a guitarist, 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.” Peter and Will’s newest album of original music, Deja Vu, features Albert “Tootie” Heath, and was released in April 2015.
