Created and directed by Peter & Will Anderson

With Peter Anderson, Will Anderson, Bruce Harris, Wayne Tucker, Neal Miner, Paul Wells, and Dalton Ridenhour

59E59 Theaters’ musical favorites The Anderson Brothers return with a new show featuring beloved numbers by Scott Joplin, Louis Armstrong, George Gershwin, Django Reinhart, Duke Ellington, Dave Brubeck, and Antonio Carlos Jobim, among others. 

Peter & Will Anderson and their quintet trace the century-long development of American jazz from New Orleans to the Big Apple. Spanning ragtime and blues, to swing, bebop, bossa nova, cool jazz and third-stream, and showcasing such songs as Maple Leaf Rag, Sing, Sing, Sing, Summertime, The Pink Panther Theme, and My Favorite Things, this concert takes audiences down a musical memory lane to experience how these styles evolved and became intertwined with the music of Broadway and popular culture.

The Anderson Brothers

“Virtuosos on clarinet and saxophone,” (The New York Times) Washington, DC natives and identical twins Peter and Will Anderson are known for their unique renditions of classic jazz songs and innovative original music. Since moving to New York to attend Juilliard in 2005, the Andersons have performed with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, Village Vanguard Orchestra, Jimmy and Tootie Heath, Wycliffe Gordon, Cecile McLorin Salvant, Paquito D’Rivera, and Kenny Barron. The Andersons have headlined at The Blue Note, Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Kennedy Center, New Orleans Jazz Festival, Sarasota Florida Jazz Festival, DC’s Blues Alley, and Arizona Music Festival. Their ensemble has performed in over 40 U.S. states, toured Japan, and has been featured four times in NYC’s famed Highlights in Jazz series, alongside Lou Donaldson, Ken Peplowski, and Warren Vache. Peter and Will’s debut release Correspondence was listed in Vanity Fair magazine alongside Miles Davis in “Four New Releases to Make You Love Jazz.” The Washington Post called their music, “imaginatively unfolding in ways that consistently bring a fresh perspective to classic jazz tunes.” In 2016, they performed live on Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Companion, playing a duo version of Billy Strayhorn's “Lotus Blossom."
