THE FABULOUS ANDERSON TWINS HEADLINE
PAJA’S SILVER ANNIVERSARY CONCERT
Saturday evening, September 23rd, 7:30pm
Menlo-Atherton Center for the Performing Arts
555 Middlefield (at Ravenswood), Atherton
The Palo Alto Jazz Alliance was founded in the fall of 1992, and we have cooked up something special for our 25th Anniversary concert: The Anderson Twins Trio, featuring Peter and Will Anderson, “virtuosos on clarinet and saxophone” (New York Times). Though well known on the east coast, their appearances on the left coast have been fairly rare, and this is an opportunity to see what the rest of the country has been raving about. Please, please, check out their website: www.peterandwillanderson.com and click on “Videos” to sample their brilliant takes on standards and jazz classics.
The Andersons have performed with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, the Village Vanguard Orchestra, the Jimmy Heath Big Band, Cecile McLorin Salvant, and many more—at venues like the Blue Note, Kennedy Center, DC’s Blues Alley, and the New Orleans Jazz Festival. Their trio at this coming concert will be completed by guitarist Felix Lemerle.
WHEN: Saturday, September 23, 7:30pm
WHERE: Menlo-Atherton HS Center For The Performing Arts, 555 Middlefield (at Ravenswood), Atherton. Plenty of free parking in a well-lit parking lot.
Concert proceeds go to the Education Fund of the Palo Alto Jazz Alliance, an IRC 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
