Album Notes
Andy Waddell was born and raised in the LA/Orange County area. He studied Jazz guitar starting in middle school and later continued on to be one of the few undergrads in USC history to receive a scholarship to study in their world renowned Studio Jazz Guitar Department. As a youngster, he studied jazz with some of LA’s finest guitarists including Frank Potenza, Joe Jewell, Pat Kelly, Bruce Foreman, and Joe Diorio. Performing professionally since his teens, Andy has worked alongside countless jazz greats including Peter Erskine, Lew Matthews, Ramon Banda, Grammy award winner Maria Schneider, Jim McNeely, Bill Watrous, Kendall Kay, Andy Martin, Josh Nelson, Kevin Kanner, Edwin Livingston, Luther Hughes, and Kim Richmond to name a few.

Andy Waddell’s unique and edgy sound cuts through glass and turns heads no matter who he performs with. Over the years he has developed an intense style of writing and arranging that has truly become his own. His playing stands out as an extremely progressive approach to jazz that is rare to the west coast. His modern style of writing and arranging has been identified as incredibly deep both harmonically and melodically, while still being grounded in the roots of traditional jazz, with his broad and extensive vocabulary.

After working for many years as a sideman, Andy recently recorded this debut album (Sunset to 7) under his own name. Joining Andy on "Sunset to 7" are:
Tenor - Tom Catanzaro
Piano - Matt Politano
Drums - Evan Stone
Bass - Roger Shew
Vocals - Nancy Sanchez (Blue Skies)
