WORLD CLASS SAXOPHONIST MARCUS ANDERSON ENJOYS AND Coffee, HIS LATEST VENTURE
World renowned saxophonist Marcus Anderson has blended two of his favorite things – music and coffee and introduces four delicious flavors of coffee under his new brand AND Coffee™ (www.andproducts.net) , accompanied by a new CD of the same name. The CD is available online as is the coffee, which will also soon be available in retail stores. The flavors reflect his musical tastes with compositions on the CD bearing the same names and styles – Passion Blend (Decaf), Cup of Joe (Mild Roast, Easy Sipping), Hazelnut, and Cappuccino Strut (Bold Roast). All are roasted and distributed in his home state of North Carolina. Each 12 oz. bag of ground coffee retails for $12.99.
This marks Anderson’s eighth album in ten years. When not on the road performing his own tunes to his loyal audiences around the world, he is on the road with Prince as part of his New Power Generation band. “Touring with Prince has been rewarding in so many different ways; I feel as if I’m in grad school, business classes, and etiquette school all wrapped into one. Thank you Paisley University!”
The song titles and moods of each song on the “AND Coffee” album correspond to the flavorful tastes, aromas and emotions that each of the various coffee flavors in ANDerson’s selections reflect, from mild to passionate and bold. The CD is available for sale with or without purchasing coffee, although audiences would be missing out on the full bodied, rich and tasty beverages that are synonymous with the moods and mastery reflected on the album.
Why coffee? ANDerson explains, “Coffee is a beverage enjoyed all over the world. People share the experience of drinking a cup of Joe with a stranger and begin to relate to one another. Mutual appreciation of music has the same kind of effect on people. I love being a part of products that bring us all together.” He continues, “And now you don’t have to shuffle through your music library to create the perfect coffee drinker’s playlist. With AND Coffee we have merged great music with great flavors.”
