Peter and Will Anderson
Benny Meets Artie
February 5, 2020
“Virtuosos on clarinet and saxophone” (New York Times), Grammy-winning identical twins and Juilliard grads Peter and Will Anderson present Benny Meets Artie at Feinstein’s/54 Below!
The Andersons will explore the lives and music of two American cultural icons, clarinetists Benny Goodman & Artie Shaw, featuring their jazz sextet of vocalist Molly Ryan, pianist Rossano Sportiello, drummer Phil Stewart, and bassist Clovis Nicolas. Songs will include swing era hits including “Sing, Sing Sing”, “Begin the Beguine”, “Stardust”, and “Moonglow.” Raised in poverty in Chicago, Benny Goodman was a classical clarinet prodigy who soon sparked an international swing craze in the 1930s, and premiered the first jazz concert at Carnegie Hall in 1938. Artie Shaw was a composer, author, and master clarinetist, pushing musical boundaries by blending American swing with European and Latin styles.
