Jazz Quartet instrumentation - sax, piano, upright bass, drums - with a very accessible flow. Perfect for jazz radio play.

On his debut recording, Anderson has proven that jazz can be harmonically complex, melodically intricate, and rhythmically hip – and still be totally accessible. You will not have to work hard to “get” this music, yet you may be hard-pressed to compare it closely to anything else you’ve heard. These are fresh, new sounds – composed, arranged, and performed with clarity and directness.

What the Reviews are saying about "Clarity"

JazzTimes Review:
"...composer/saxophonist Dave Anderson: a master class in giving eight originals, their fragments of scales or entire lines, complete make-overs harmonically, rhythmically and melodically. If you're lucky enough to visit Seattle and hear the Anderson foursome live..."

"Love the record. Great energy, fabulous melody and solos. Bravo! My ears thank you and so do I." - Jazzzdog Promotions

"Smokin'!" - Clark Terry

"Great to hear someone really care for the soprano sax." - Rufus Reid

"Anderson was cool and direct, carrying a wide-range of emotions through each piece." - The Jet City Redhead

"Pulling happy audiences into a new perspective." - J&J Newsletter

"I really enjoyed hearing Dave play!" - Ray Brown
