About Anderson Quartet 

Allow Anderson Quartet to move your soul through the music and inspiration of the Diné (Navajo people). Calling upon improvised sounds of the Diné circle, Anderson Quartet’s music resurfaces as jazz, funk, and hip-hop and harkens back to the social tornado of Diné Spinning Songs—songs composed to teach humanity. This music fuses the Navajo-improvised melodies of trumpeter Delbert Anderson, the funk and Latin groove rhythms from drummer Khalill Brown, the exploration of jams from bassist Mike McCluhan, and the talents of keyboard player Robert Muller. As it reaches into the past, Anderson Quartet performs stories for today and preserves its musical heritage for tomorrow.
