Peter & Will Anderson Sextet to Play Louis Armstrong House Museum, 8/17
Louis Armstrong House Museum welcomes Peter & Will Anderson Sextet, one of NYC's hottest jazz bands, to Louis's house on Saturday, August 17, 2013 at 2pm. This is the final concert in the museum's Hot Jazz / Cool Garden Summer Concert Series and it's a must-have ticket this summer. To top off the irresistible sounds of this sextet, the concert includes a complimentary sample of red beans n' rice (Louis's favorite recipe) & sweet tea all served up in Louis's garden. Advance tickets are $18 and include a historic house tour pass (good for six months). Tickets can be purchased online at LouisArmstrongHouse.org. Advance purchase is suggested; only limited tickets available at the door for $20.
The Peter & Will Anderson Sextet features Peter and Will Anderson - the two Juilliard-educated masters of the clarinet and saxophone. They will be bringing along trumpeter Jon-Erik Kellso (who just performed to a sold-out crowd in Louis's garden with his EarRegulars on July 20), pianist Ehud Asherie, bassist Clovis Nicolas and drummer Phil Stewart.
Peter and Will Anderson's expertise has made them saxophonists of choice for Wynton Marsalis, Jimmy Heath, the Village Vanguard Orchestra, Wycliffe Gordon, Michael Feinstein and the New York City Ballet. Leading their own ensemble, they've performed at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola, Iridium, Symphony Space, Blues Alley, East Coast Jazz Fest, Mid-Atlantic Jazz Fest, New Jersey Jazz Society, Pennsylvania Jazz Society, 54 Below, Highlights in Jazz, Buck-Hill Skytop Music Fest, Treetops Music Fest, Central Illinois Jazz Fest, Jacob Burns Film Center, Louis Armstrong House, Bickford Museum Theater, Stony Brook and Michigan State Universities.
