Andrew Anderson

Andrew “Andy” Anderson was born on August 12, 1912, in Mandeville, Louisiana. He played in the Young Tuxedo Band and the Allen Brass Band. In the mid to late 1920s, he played with Joe Oliver in Chicago. He led the Pelican State Band in the late 1930s. Anderson continued playing in New Orleans with various bands until the 1980s. In the 1970s and 1980s he played and recorded with the New Orleans Ragtime Orchestra. Please do not confuse him with trumpeter Edward “Andy” Anderson, who was born in Florida but went to New York and recorded with Jelly Roll Morton.

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.
