With more than 30 GRAMMY-nominated recordings and a host of international awards and honors between their storied resumes, Jim Anderson and Ulrike Schwarz of Anderson Audio NY stand as two of the most revered and cutting edge figures in the world of acoustic audio engineering and production. Since their marriage in 2015, Schwarz and Anderson’s pristine, high definition stereo and surround sound recordings have been fixtures at the Grammy Awards and on critics’ Best Of lists. While Schwarz often acts as producer and Anderson as engineer, the pair regularly reverse roles depending on the project at hand, and their versatility across genres and settings has proven unparalleled. In just the last few years alone, the two have garnered Grammy nominations with their recordings of contemporary Norwegian composer Gisle Kverndokk and American jazz stalwart Patricia Barber; captured the score for Shaka King’s critically acclaimed film Judas and the Black Messiah; collaborated with artists as diverse as Chinese vocalist Min Xiao-Fen and Pomplamoose singer/songwriter Nataly Dawn; and recorded Afro-Cuban pianist Gonzalo Rubalcaba’s Grammy-winning collection Skyline, which took home the award for Best Jazz Instrumental Album in 2022.
