Wessell "Warmdaddy" Anderson -- first string alto saxist with Wynton Marsalis' Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra -- helped make some of the most defining music of the late-'80s and early-'90s jazz revival while on the road and in the studio with the Wynton Marsalis Septet. His unique sound is a mix of traditional New Orleans jazz and a sweeping blues style similar to that of Cannonball Adderly. Anderson is joined on stage at The Velvet Note by jazz trumpeter Mark Rapp -- one of the most promising cross-over contemporary artists in modern jazz. Rapp trained under piano master Ellis Marsalis at the University of New Orleans, and went on to release four records, including leading the closing track of Disney's CD Everybody Wants to be a Cat, starring Roy Hargrove, Dave Brubeck, Esperanza Spalding and other biggies. He's redefining jazz for a new generation with his trio The Song Project, which tackles songs by Radiohead, Paul McCartney, AC/DC and more. Their first album was a trailblazing "Applum" -- a complete multimedia album experience packaged and distributed via the iPad and iPhone.
