DK Anderson's conceptual jazz pays homage to the old school greats while laying in a vibe that makes you know jazz is alive. Featuring DK on tenor saxophone, the band can groove up with jazz rock/soul fusion or pull to the background with sexy jazz, depending on your event or venue. Band size can range from a duo all the way up to a full big band jazz orchestra.

"..If you appreciate artists who push the boundaries you'll love hearing DK Anderson's Cypher obliterate boundaries. Backed by some of Pittsburgh's most recognizable jazz artists tenor saxophonist DK Anderson explores dynamic new approaches to both rock and jazz classics as well as making bold statements with original compositions. The cd "8th window" opens into interesting new territory."

BIO: DK [Darnell Kenneth] Anderson was born on November 19, 1979 in Monessen, Pennsylvania . He began his musical studies on tenor saxophone at the age of 11. At the age 16 he started playing the piano and became interested in composition. DK Anderson graduated from Duquesne University School of Music having studied with saxophonist James Houlik; composition and orchestration with Michel Tomaro and David Stock; counterpoint with Dr. Robert Shankovich; and jazz studies later with Sean Jones of the Lincoln Center Jazz Band. In 2001, Anderson premiered his first work for big band at Pittsburgh's Mellon Winterfest Jazz Festival. Hailed as an "unique voice" and "artist to watch" by the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, Anderson is a veteran of the Roger Humphries Big Band, Pittsburgh's "Boogie Hustlers", and plays freelance saxophone with numerous bands in the region. His Cypher Band debuted at the Pittsburgh JazzLive Festival 2016. His first album, 8th Window, was released in November 2916 including 5 original jazz compositions.
