Product Notes

As a native of Georgia, Anthony grew up in Lincolnton, a small town nestled on the Savannah River, north of Augusta and 60 miles from the University of Georgia. Anthony attended the Lincoln County School system. He began playing Alto saxophone in the 5th grade, later switching to the Tenor saxophone in high school. Dr. John Bradley, Anthony's high school band director, had a large impact in his life, using music to guide and mentor him into manhood. During his teen years, Anthony was only into the popular music of the day, R&B and the early stages of hip hop. Dr. Bradley introduced him to other styles of music, including jazz and classical music. Only wanting to play the popular music, neither spiked an interest in Anthony. However, after playing in the Jazz Band, Dr. Bradley introduced him to Grover Washington Jr., "Mister Magic" himself. Anthony was intrigued by this new sound of jazz called "Fusion," known as "Smooth Jazz" today. Already familiar with gospel, blues and R&B, this new sound sparked his interest in such a way that made him want more. Being introduced to other saxophonists of the eighty's including David Sanborn, Gerald Albright and Najee, Anthony knew he had found his niche.
