Jazz Studies welcomes the NYC Jazz Trio to the Ohio State School of Music. Clarinet and saxophone artists Peter and Will Anderson and guitarist Adam Moezinia will present a short concert followed by Q & A and clinic covering such topics as improvisation, career building, learning jazz repertoire, practicing, recommended recordings and life as a performer in New York City.
"Virtuosos on clarinet and saxophone” (New York Times), Peter and Will Anderson are among the most extraordinary sibling teams performing jazz today. Hailing from Washington, DC, they were selected internationally for Betty Carter's Jazz Ahead, the Next Generation Jazz Orchestra, and the NFAA Young Arts Program. Endorsees of D'Addario woodwind products, Peter and Will attended Juilliard in New York City, where they currently reside. They have appeared with the Jimmy Heath Big Band, Jazz @ Lincoln Center Orchestra, Village Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, and Bob Wilber Sextet.
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, Amarillo TX Museum of Art and Arizona Music Festival. Their ensemble has performed in over 30 U.S. States, toured Japan, and was featured four times in NYC's famed "Highlights in Jazz" series, alongside legends Lou Donaldson, Paquito D'Rivera, and Wycliffe Gordon. As guest clinicians, Peter and Will have visited Temple University, College of Charleston, University of Scranton, Hunter College, Stonybrook University, Michigan State University and others.
Peter and Will's 2012 release for Smalls records, Correspondence, features Kenny Barron and was chosen by Vanity Fair magazine alongside Miles Davis in "Four New Releases to Make You Love Jazz." Their recent trio 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, Deja Vu, features Albert "Tootie" Heath, and was called "a burner that reveals the band’s cohesiveness and spirit" by Mike Joyce in JazzTimes.
The jazz clinic is free and open to the public.
