born in Philadelphia, is an artist to take note of. His signature sound and range, especially on the tenor saxophone, will capture your attention from the very first note he plays. From soul to jazz to fusion to gospel to contemporary popular music, Anthony’s versatile style appeals to a wide range of musical tastes. In 1982, at the age of twenty-one years old, Anthony left James Madison University to pursue his calling as a professional musician, ending up in Northern Virginia with The Sparkplugs. In 1989, he formed his own band. Tony Terry and Clockwork performed contemporary jazz covers and original music. After more than a year of successful dates in and around Washington, D.C., he disbanded Clockwork to pursue freelance work, and to dedicate more of his time to the original music projects, Egypt, and later Double Digit. Anthony's devotion to his craft and his singular style of playing have led to openings for such artists as the Kinks, the Busboys, Steppenwolf, Junior Walker and the All Stars, Denice Williams, Natalie Cole, and Spyro Gyra, among others. He has toured the United States and Europe, shared his talents on recordings with Yasmeen, Double Digit, Anthony Archer, Forte', Manny Fresh, Mel Waiters, Hamilton Loomis, and has performed live with Motown legend El DeBarge. In 1994, he moved to Houston, Texas and is currently working as a successful freelance musician, playing soprano, tenor, and baritone saxes, along with MIDI wind synth, vocals, and now bass guitar. Anthony continues to work with a variety of musical artist and styles all over the country and abroad. In addition to working on his own original music project, he currently performs with The Megatones, The Green Onions, Andrea B., La Raza Connection, Houston icon Yvonne Washington, and Blind Pig recording artist, Hamilton Loomis.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.
I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.
My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."
