Born in the North Yorkshire Moors, the son of a music teacher, and based in Leeds for a time, saxophonist and Dankworth Prize-winning composer Matt Anderson moved to London in 2015 to study at the Royal Academy of Music where he now works coaching Junior Jazz ensembles.
His first two albums, Wild Flower Sextet and Rambling, were well received by the jazz press. His new Quartet album, The Town and the City, is released in July 2022.
Dankworth Prize for Jazz Composition (Small Group) - 2017
“memorable melodies, adeptly interwoven influences... unhurriedly stylish... (Anderson) can deliver an ear-
catching tenor sax flourish, but knows the value of understatement and uses it well.”
