Clifton Anderson | Decade [Emarcy / Umgd, 2009]
A welcome return to recording from one of the most accomplished trombonists working in jazz today, Decade by Clifton Anderson will be released on January 27th, 2009 on Doxy Records, with distribution by Emarcy/Universal. For the past 25 years, Anderson has traveled the world as Sonny Rollins’s front-line partner. I don’t think there’s anyone out there today who plays better trombone that Clifton,” says Rollins.
On his new release Anderson finds support from some of jazz’s most prominent talents. From Rollins bands past and present come Bob Cranshaw, Stephen Scott, Steve Jordan, Al Foster and Kimati Dinizulu. Jordan, Anderson, and pianist Larry Willis are alumni of New York’s High School of Music and Art.
