Dave Anderson

Blue Innuendo
Label 1 L1-2003-2

Like shopkeepers who specialize in shoe repair, plumbing supplies or small appliance maintenance whose ubiquity is matched by their anonymity, now Brooklyn-based tenor and soprano saxophonist Dave Anderson is one of those journeyman players who makes the music business percolate without often taking centre stage. The Minnesota native whose associates have ranging from producer Creed Taylor to trumpeter Clark Terry has with Blue Innuendo produced a session that reflects his status. A laid-back cool school variant of the jazz organ trio and quartet tradition it’s pleasant and swinging, but lacks the visceral tenacity to put it into the top ranks. MORE
