On Tuesday, April 2, 2019 the fabulous Anderson Trio gave a concert at the historic Yucca Theatre in downtown Midland, TX. Part of a whirlwind tour of the United States, Peter and Will were joined by the talented and nuanced playing of Felix Lemerle.
The Trio played several tunes from George and Ira Gershwin, notably the gorgeous and heart-breaking “But Not For Me” which was balanced by an energetic arrangement of “Rhapsody in Blue.”
Peter’s soulful tenor sax playing and pristine soprano sax tone were put on display in the theatre’s perfect acoustic environment.
Will’s clarinet and flute performances added a graceful elegance to the music. Felix performed as guitar, bass, and drummer simultaneously! He knew exactly how to provide support to the soloists, add energy when needed, and his solos gave the audience an intimate glimpse into his creative side.
We can’t wait to have the Anderson Trio back again! Be sure to catch Peter and Will at the Jazz Party, May 17-19, 2019!
