“Virtuosos on clarinet & saxophone” (New York Times), Grammy-winning Juilliard graduates and identical twins Peter & Will Anderson will explore French-inspired jazz with a fascinating narrative, entertaining video presentation, and live performance featuring Vince Giordano. You will be transported to the streets of Paris and the French countryside with sounds of swing and gypsy jazz including "La Vie En Rose," "C'est Si Bon," "Nuages," and "Claire de Lune." Had France not supported musicians like Django Reinhardt, Sidney Bechet, and Josephine Baker, America's great art form would likely have not thrived in the same way.
The Anderson brothers have been featured soloists on the Broadway stage, the Kennedy Center, Blue Note, Jazz at Lincoln Center, New Orleans Jazz Festival, live on Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion Radio Program, and can be heard on the soundtrack of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire with Vince Giordano's Nighthawks. Vanity Fair magazine listed their album in “Four New Releases to Make You Love Jazz,” and the Washington Post said they “consistently bring a fresh perspective to classic jazz.” www.PeterAndWillAnderson.com
