Anne Rhodes posted this comment in the “About Me” section of this site, but I thought it was worth re-posting on the front page. Anne will sing the part of Sundance in Trillium E.
So happy to see this blog!
Rehearsals began on Monday and are going beautifully. Of course everyone is excited about working with the legendary Braxton, but as you can imagine the experience goes much deeper than that. What Anthony is doing here is bringing together and expanding a community of creative musicans, and the potential ripple effect of this project should not be underestimated.
The combination of flexibility and rigorousness in Anthony’s musical approach, his resistance to genre pigeon-holing, his contagious generosity of spirit, and his love of a good hang with a bunch of decent folks who respect each other, are having a great impact on a whole generation of musicians. Please forgive my gushing; I’m a grouchy cynic by nature but have been walking on air since this project got started.
As Anthony would say, hooray!
