SONGBOOK

DK ANDERSON

In cart Not available Out of stock

My third album, SONGBOOK, features several works of Cole Porter, along with other popular music standards that make a great fit. I took the challenge to play all of the piano for this album and would recommend listening to a very uptempo arrangement of Cole Porter’s “All Through The Night”. This arrangement demonstrates the many ways to harmonically get from point A to point B. The listener will hear an entirely different way to interpret Cole Porter’s main progression each time, and right when you get a feel for this reharmonization the entire key is taken up one step. Burt Bacharach’s song “Alfie” also has a unique approach, adding a live warping to the pitch of the rhodes effect accompanying the vocals.

DK ANDERSON...piano, keyboards, auxiliary percussion; DIANE ANDERSON...vocals; DAVID JORDAN HANSEN...drums; ELI NARAGON...acoustic bass; TONY CAMPBELL...saxophone on Midnight Sun; All songs produced and arranged by DK Anderson. Also available on CD through Amazon.

Quantum Truth

QUANTUM TRUTH, my second album, explores the possibilities in a constantly changing reality. I took the challenge to find musical standards most known for difficulty, and to find a way to make these standards equally enjoyable to those who understand the complexity - just the same as those who have no understanding of this. Listen to arrangements of Joe Henderson’s “Inner Urge”, along with Thelonious Monk’s “Epistrophy” - famously interpreted by John Coltrane. This album features one original composition entitled “Sun Sail”. The work was premiered at Pittsburgh Jazz Live and Cultural Trust. It’s live video recording has received over 31,000 views along with more than 280 shares on my public Facebook fan page. I was humbled and thankful to writer Jazz Da Gama (Raúl Da Gama) who later wrote an entire page review of this album.

DK Anderson...tenor sax and Rhodes; Maria Castellon...bass; Dave DiStefano...guitar and drums; Enzo Belli...guitar; Kai Ballard...drums; Diane Anderson...vocals

DK ANDERSON'S CYPHER

In cart Not available Out of stock

The vinyl version of my first album, 8TH WINDOW, features all original music and compositions. The extended compact disc counterpart to 8TH WINDOW includes three arrangements of popular musical standards, one of which, “Manic Depression”, was inducted into the Jimi Hendrix Museum. This arrangement features the natural overtone series created on saxophone through embouchure and breath alone, creating a true distortion of sound and chord which resembles the modern distortion of guitar pedals. Hendrix pioneered this style and technique before modern effects pedals, which now allow a user to recreate these sounds, without having any knowledge of the natural overtone series in which all music notes and scales are derived.

DK Anderson -tenor sax and keyboards; Paul Thompson -bass; Thomas Wendt -drums; Dave DiStefano -guitar; Rasheed Anderson -trumpet; Diane Anderson -vocals; Larry Luther -sound engineer; David Hamilton Jr -drums on Caravan

Also available on CD and vinyl through Amazon.
