Fred Anderson


Long a respected musician in Chicago's experimental jazz circles, tenor saxophonist Fred Anderson, now in his 70s, has only recently come into wider recognition. His tone has a dark, grainy quality, and his playing -- while typically "free" in the improvisational sense -- relies on thoughtful melodic and thematic development, largely refraining from harsh overblown noises. His Sonny Rollins-meets-Avant Garde Jazz sounds have surfaced on a number of recent recordings with Chicago scene stalwarts such as fellow tenor man Ken Vandermark and drummer/percussionist Hamid Drake.
