Sweden, Estonia, England, Luxembourg, Hungary, Poland and Germany, where he now resides, but is always heading back to The US for performances with his band to the South Beach Jazz Festival among other highlights of his tour. Anderson and his band have made a significant mark of New Orleans flare to the South Florida area. He is currently touring the E.U with his Wonderful World Trio, based in Budapest, Hungary.  Anderson’s Armstrong is too natural to be called uncanny. Starting out with the look, he slips easily into the rest — the dinner jacket, the trumpet and hanky, the roly-poly voice, and above all, the contagious the joie de vivre that made Armstrong so beloved.
