American musician Gary Michael Anderson attended Berklee School of Music as a Down Beat Hall of Fame Scholarship recipient, and went on to graduate Summa Cum Laude. He served there as a full-time professor and a member of the Berklee Saxophone Quartet, received the institution’s Outstanding Achievement Award, and has since been named one of Berklee’s Fifty Outstanding Alumnus.
For five years, beginning in 1973, Anderson toured with Woody Herman’s Thundering Herd as music director, playing saxophone and arranging. He is credited on seven albums.
After leaving the Herman’s band, Anderson settled in New York City where he composed, arranged, and orchestrated for television, films, and stage.
Recently re-located to Las Vegas, Nev., Anderson continues his multi-faceted work and participates in summer jazz clinics around the country.
