About This Event

WILL ANDERSON plays BENNY GOODMAN, featuring Howard Alden
Will Anderson-clarinet, Howard Alden-guitar, Dwight Kilian-bass, Dom Moio-drums

Called a “virtuoso on clarinet and saxophone” (New York Times), Washington, D.C.-born Juilliard graduate Will Anderson has performed with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, and can be heard on the 2014 Grammy-winning soundtrack of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire with Vince Giordano’s Nighthawks.  Along with his twin brother Peter, Will has headlined at Carnegie Hall, The Blue Note, The Kennedy Center, Feinstein’s 54 Below, New Orleans Jazz Festival, and live on Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Companion.  The Washington Post called their music “imaginatively unfolding in ways that consistently bring a fresh perspective to classic jazz.”  The Andersons have created, produced, and starred in seven sold-out productions at Manhattan’s 59E59 Theaters.  Recently, they’ve raised $25,000 to establish the Joe Temperley Juilliard Student Scholarship Fund and tribute album in honor of their late great saxophone mentor.  On Saturday, April 16th at the Nash, Anderson will pay tribute to the legendary clarinetist and bandleader Benny Goodman.  The show will feature Arizona’s own guitarist Howard Alden, who is internationally renowned as one of the world’s leading interpreters of jazz and the Great American Songbook.
