               ”Virtuosos on clarinet and saxophone,” (New York Times)Peter and Will Anderson are one of the most extraordinary duos in jazz performing today.  As young as 15 they toured the United Kingdom, playing traditional jazz, swing, and bebop.  Born and raised in the Washington, D.C. area, they were mentored by Texas-native saxophonist Paul Carr, before attending Juilliard in New York City, where they currently reside. Peter and Will’s expertise has made them saxophonists of choice for Wynton Marsalis, Jimmy Heath, Wycliffe Gordon and the Village Vanguard Orchestra.
                 They’ve headlined at NYC’s Jazz at Lincoln Center, D.C.’s Blues Alley, the New Orleans Jazz Fest, Sarasota FL Jazz Festival, South Carolina’s Jazz Corner, Seattle’s Triple Door, Iowa’s Bix Beiderbecke Festival, the Central Illinois Jazz Festival, Pennsylvania’s Deer Head Inn, Long Island’s Guild Hall, and Michigan State University.  They’ve led several month-long running jazz concerts at 59E59 Theaters; ”Artie Shaw at 100,” “The Fabulous Dorseys,” and “Le Jazz Hot,” which broke box-office sales records and was nominated for a 2014 Drama Desk award.
                 Peter and Will released The Music of the Soprano Masters in 2013, featuring Bob Wilber. Correspondence, their debut recording, features Kenny Barron, and was listed by Vanity Fair magazine in “Four New Releases to Make You Love Jazz.”  Most Recently, Peter and Will are featured on JAZZIZ Magazine’s Winter 2014 CD Soundtrack, and are performing alongside Lou Donaldson at “Highlights in Jazz,” March 19th, 2015 at Tribeca PAC.  Featuring guitarist Alex Wintz, the Anderson’s Trio will tour the Southern U.S. February 727th, 2015, and recently released Reed Reflections, which the Washington Postcalls “imaginatively unfolding in ways that consistently bring a fresh perspective to classic jazz tunes.”
