...a player for the connoisseur to savor.
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. A native of Polson, Montana, Clipper began playing electric electric bass in 1973. 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. Clipper was educated at the University of Montana, where he studied classical bass under Frank Diliberto and Jazz Workshop under Lance Boyd. It was there that he began to master the acoustic bass. The list of recordings on which Clipper appears is both long and impressive, including five with award winning Seattle jazz vocalist, Greta Matassa. He has recently performed with jazz artists, Micheal Brecker, Dave Samuels, Peter Erskine, Bruce Forman, Tamir Hendelman, Bob Mintzer, Lew Soloff, Bucky Pizzarelli, Benny Golson, Paquito D'Rivera, Phil Woods and Buddy DeFranco. Clipper appears in jazz festivals throughout the Northwest and Canada and has been a featured guest artist, annually, at the Buddy DeFranco/ U of M Jazz Festival and the Port Townsend Jazz Festival. He currently teaches jazz bass studies at Pacific Lutheran University.
