On A Clear Day
On A Clear Day is unashamedly ‘old school’ – from jazz standards and classics, through to early Stevie Wonder and Motown – a cross section of Anthony’s personal record collection. There is nothing ‘old’ about the treatment of them though. The songs capture the fresh, positive and feel-good energy of his audience-winning tours.
Anthony’s debut album with iconic French record label Naïve is released in Europe April/May 2013! It features Anthony’s trio with horn section, guitar, strings and guest soloists including Australian trumpeter James Morrison and saxophonist Nigel Hitchcock and includes jazz classics such as ‘Too Darn Hot’, ‘Stepping Out’ and ‘When I Fall In Love’.
‘Delovely,’ released on the 27th Sept 2011, is a 5-track EP featuring 4 classic jazz standards and one brand new original track penned with long time collaborator Guy Mathers. Arranged by Anthony and performed by his 8-piece band, the record features ‘Tea For Two,’ ‘Cheek to Cheek,’ ‘Delovely’, ‘For Once In My Life’ and original ‘Going Nowhere’.
‘Guaranteed!’ was Anthony’s debut album, released in 2009, and showcases tunes written and arranged by Anthony with lyricist Guy Mathers. With a nod to the American Songbook, the album gained critical acclaim, including broadcaster Sir Michael Parkinson who played it on his Radio 2 show.
