It was such a pleasure to see 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 (opening night featured Bruce Harris on trumpet, Neal Miner on bass, Paul Wells on drums and Dalton Ridenhour on piano) 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 The 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.
