Clifton Anderson Quintet Returns to NYC with Iridium Gig

Trombonist/Composer Clifton Anderson brings his Quintet into the Iridium on Tuesday, August 4th in support of his new Doxy Records release, Decade.   A February gig at Dizzy’s Coca Cola introduced the CD and debuted his new group, which features Eric Wyatt on tenor, Stephen Scott on piano, Russel Blake on bass, and Steve Williams on drums, in addition to Anderson’s vibrant trombone.

clifford-andersonUpcoming for the Bronx native is a September 29 date at Birdland, and two nights at the new East Harlem hotspot, Creole, on October 9 and 10.

Reaction to Decade has been positive with encouraging reviews and considerable airplay.  In his celebrated blog, jazzwax, Marc Myers wrote: “…Anderson demonstrates a new level of maturity and offers a warm, round and purposeful sound…his compositions are all strong and fresh, and they avoid being derivative. Best of all, they are tailor made to show off the trombonist's lyricism and powerful chops...Decade is a solid work by Anderson, who clearly has a rich musical voice, a creative vision and a comprehensive grasp of the instrument's tender purpose."

Clifton Anderson's newly revised website includes lead sheets and solo transcriptions for Decade and his debut recording as a leader, Landmarks, as well as a video overview of Decade and some performance video.
