Been Down This Road

Featuring the music of Clifton Anderson
Duration: 5:37

Been Down This Road Before delivers a musical message at a time when racism, greed, injustice and a deadly pandemic are jeopardizing our ability to exist harmoniously with one another and with our planet. The work contains ten tracks that are brought to life by eighteen sensational musicians. Included are four tributes dedicated to four special people: Sonny Rollins, Bob Cranshaw, Kimati Dinizulu and Clifton's sister, Vallyn Anderson. Along with Clifton, the title track features the lead vocal of Andy Bey, with John F. Adams - keyboards/bc vc., Peter Bernstein - guitar, Tom Barney - bass, Steve Jordan - drums, Victor See Yuen - percussion, Mala Waldron and Angela Workman - background vocals. The rest of the tracks feature the stellar line-up of: Al Foster / Ronnie Burrage / Steve Jordan - drums, Buster Williams/ Tom Barney - bass, Stephen Scott/ Monty Alexander/ Tadataka Unno - piano, Peter Bernstein - guitar, Sammy Figueroa/ Victor See Yuen - percussion, Rene McLean/ Antoine Roney and Eric Wyatt -.saxophones and reeds in various configurations.

"Clifton Anderson is among my favorite trombonists - When he plays, he's channeling the sound of singing." —Marc Myers / Jazzwax

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
