Story The late Edmund Anderson created Midtown Jazz at Midday in partnership with Saint Peters Church and the Midtown Arts Common to provide opportunities for the community of midtown Manhattan to hear good jazz music over the typical business lunch hour. The program has run continuously since its founding in 1982. A personal friend of Duke Ellington, Anderson was a music lover who wrote lyrics for Ellington and Billy Strayhorn, and helped produce Dukes Black, Brown and Beige concert at Carnegie Hall. Prior to his death in 2002, Anderson was beloved to and highly active in the jazz ministry at Saint Peters Church.
