Matt Anderson | Back
Tenor Sax

Matt Anderson is part of the remarkable crop of inventive young jazz musicians to emerge from Leeds College of Music, but with a less iconoclastic approach than many of them. In fact his playing is deeply rooted in the classic straightahead jazz tradition, revelling in re-interpretations of repertoire from the song-based standards of the 1940s through to the music of such masters as Wayne Shorter. He also writes intriguing compositions of his own, but always with a melodic and harmonic base that makes his work attractive to inventive but accessible jazz.
