Clipper Anderson

Professor of Jazz Bass Studies at Pacific Lutheran University

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. He was described in Seattle's premier jazz magazine Earshot as being "...a player for the connoisseur to savor" and most recently made the cover interview in the December 2008 issue of Jazz Profile Magazine.

The list of recordings on which Clipper appears is both long and impressive, including several with award winning Seattle jazz vocalist, Greta Matassa.  He has recently performed with jazz artists, Michael Brecker, Randy Brecker, Terry Gibbs, Peter Erskine, Bob Berg, James Moody, Jack Jones, Paquito D'Rivera, 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.
