Anthony’s voice has been described as both tough and vulnerable. His songs move from swagger and swing to sweet and luscious. Marc Myers (journalist, author, historian, founder JazzWax, and contributor to the Wall Street Journal) writes crisply, "Dig the voice…”
Anthony says, "My goal is to write and record music with melodies and lyrics with deference to those that comprise the American songbook." The music has been called sophisticated by some. Others in the music industry have described the songs as, “filled with passion and wonderful surprises”. Of course, the eye is of the beholder (or of the ear in this case).
What is not subjective is that the musicians in the recordings are consummate professionals with impressive backgrounds. Their resumes include playing with such diverse notables as Frank Sinatra, Les Paul, Elvis Presley, Olivia Newton-John, Stan Getz, Buddy Rich, Blood, Sweat & Tears, Chicago, Lionel Hampton Big Band, and other prominent names and bands in the music industry, as well as performing in Broadway stage productions.
Anthony concludes, "I hope that jazz enthusiasts, and those with an ear for pop music, will take the opportunity to listen and judge for themselves".
