Carl Anderson and His New Orleans Jazz Band is a regular favorite for the Central Illinois area. Carl is joined by six other seasoned, traditional jazz musicians to bring back this truly original jazz style to our area. His group has performed all over the area, including appearances at the Decatur Jazz Festival / Juvae Jazz, Jimmy’s Bar and Grill, Tin Pan Alley Restaurant, Bernardi’s North, the Central Illinois Jazz Society and private parties. For more specifics, you can log onto their Web site at www.andersonjazz.com for their complete schedule and details. The group recently released their third CD, “Second Line”, which will be available at the program. Carl is also a founding member of the Central Illinois Jazz Orchestra, a big band that performs throughout the area.
Carl selected the very best players he could find for his traditional jazz group. The band members currently include musicians from Illinois and Iowa. The group includes Carl on trombone, Doug Myers on trumpet, Craig Bullis on clarinet, Denny Schielein on piano and vocals, Jeremy Clark on drums, Jason Shea on string bass and tuba, and Lance Dieckow on banjo.
