With Wessell “Warmdaddy” Anderson, alto saxophone; Wess Anderson IV, trombone; Sullivan Fortner, piano; Nathan Brown, bass; Zane Rodulfo, drums; Ed Perkin, vocals
Welcome home, Wess! Brooklyn native Wessell “Warmdaddy” Anderson is a former long-time member of both the Wynton Marsalis Septet and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, and he is a superb bandleader in his own right. This winter he brings us a new group, featuring his son Wess Anderson IV on trombone and a diverse band spanning multiple generations. Expect a nice selection of straight ahead jazz and bop, with vocals by New Orleans native Ed Perkins and a spotlight on Anderson’s athletic saxophone playing.
