"Jai Jai Jackson's Radio Show"


Man accused of being Full of Soul on several jazz reviews, decides to move from side man to front man as a solo artist. Keith Anderson, not to be confused with the country singer, came on to the jazz scene in 1993. Keith was discovered by the legendary pianist/singer Les McCann. He landed the job as the featured soloist in McCann’s band. Keith is a Native Texan and started playing the saxophone at the age of 10. Keith was accepted to Arts Magnet High School, an elite prestiges school in Dallas Texas. Arts Magnet, now known as School for performing and Visual Arts, has produced such sensations as Roy Hargrove, Erykah Badu, and Nora Jones all credited as Grammy winners. Keith has toured in many places throughout the world including Europe, Asia, South America, and Russia just to name a few. Anderson has toured and recorded with music icons such as Les McCann, Al Jereau , Roy Hargrove, “Fathead Newman”, Kirk Franklin, Paul Jackson Jr., and Bobby Lyle. To Anderson’s surprise he was asked to play on Kanye West debut album “College Dropout” which was an accomplished Grammy winning album. Keith was asked back to record on Kanye’s following album “Late Registration”.
Keith has been said by many, to be the newest edition of the “Texas Tenors which includes greats such as “Fathead Newman”, James Clay, Arnette Cobb, and Marshell Ivory. Anderson is also known as an accomplished songwriter. You can hear his music on Paul Jackson Jr.’s latest CD “In A Still Small Voice”, and Roy Hargrove’s Strength EP. He is currently working with the well known bassist Marcus Miller as the featured soloist and finds himself persuing his own band with best friend and fellow musician Bobby Sparks. Keith says Bobby is the inspiration that helps him keep pushing along in this very difficult business.
