Clipper Anderson is one of the Northwest's leading Bassists. Playing all styles on acoustic and electric bass, Clipper is a composer, studio musician, vocalist and educator.

Six months later he was selected by Rich Matteson as the All-Star bass player in Montana State University’s statewide high school jazz festival.

Greta Matassa: Portrait

Read "Portrait" reviewed by Paul Rauch

Greta Matassa has made choices in her career that have sacrificed some visibility in exchange for lifestyle.

Tula's Jazz Club: A Seattle Tradition in the Making

Read "Tula's Jazz Club: A Seattle Tradition in the Making" reviewed by Paul Rauch

Clipper Anderson: Ballad of the Sad Young Men

Read "Ballad of the Sad Young Men" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Hidden in the basement of Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Washington is bassist/vocalist Clipper Anderson. Not ringing any bells? That's because he has been a sideman, buried behind the principals on upwards of 60 recordings while recording as leader on two previous releases: And to All a Goodnight (Origin Records, 2011) and The Road Home (Origin ...
