Show tunes and other jazz standards will have the audience tapping their toes when the Placitas Artists Series presents the Anderson Trio in concert at 3:00 p.m. Sunday, April 14, 2019.
The New-York-based jazz combo features brothers Peter and Will Anderson on saxophone and clarinet, along with French-born guitarist Félix Lemerle. The Washington Posthas described their music as “imaginatively unfolding in ways that consistently bring a fresh perspective to classic jazz.”
The program begins with “Begin the Beguine” by Cole Porter. Fans of George Gershwin will be pleased to hear both his “Rhapsody in Blue” and “Summertime.” Duke Ellington’s “Mood Indigo” will get the trio’s unique treatment, as will other familiar tunes by Richard Rogers, Antonio Carlos Jobim and Horace Silver. In all, a dozen composers are represented on the program – including C.P.E. Bach!
As a special treat, the New Mexico Jazz Workshop has arranged a short opening set to be performed by Albuquerque jazz musicians.
