Trombonist Clifton Anderson has played with a Who's Who of jazz and beyond, including McCoy Tyner, Slide Hampton, and Paul Simon, and is perhaps best known as the front-line foil for tenor sax titan Sonny Rollins (who's also his uncle). DECADE is something of a concept album, a hefty summation of Anderson's wide musical range--with jazz versions of pop standards ("If") to surging hard bop to the Caribbean calypso of the Mighty Sparrow (Anderson played in his band too). Emerging from the J.J. Johnson school of straight-ahead bop trombone, Anderson is a talent to be reckoned with.
