Anders Paulsson, born October 14, 1961, is a Swedish soprano saxophonist.
After studies at the Adolf Fredrik's Music School in Stockholm, the Royal College of Music in Stockholm and the Conservatoire de Bordeaux in France, Anders Paulsson received a Fulbright scholarship for studies at the Manhattan School of Music, New York City.
