Synopsis: Ten years in the making, The Lizard Stays in the Cage is a compelling wildly entertaining examination of the artistic life as seen through the eyes of Southern Californian musician, writer and creative entrepreneur Anthony Smith. With ample doses of humor, honesty and a keen memory for detail, Smith takes the reader from his upbringing in Northern California to the 1990's music scene in San Diego, a brief but colorful stint in LA, the onto the unpredictable roads of America, where he traveled and performed incessantly with a variety of groups including his own Global Funk Council (which logged over two hundred shows a year). It’s a crazy, irreverent ride reminiscent of Chuck Klosterman, Hunter S. Thompson and Jack Kerouac, but delivered in a voice that belongs unmistakably to the author. A must read for anyone who loves music and the arts or who has ever thought about trying to do something creative for a living.
About the Author: Anthony Smith began studying jazz piano as an adolescent growing up in the Bay Area. While playing in both the jazz and concert bands at Archibishop Mitty High School, he transcribed solos from records and worked with various private teachers. After graduating, he participated in master classes organized by the pianist Don Haas, and frequented The Garden City, a jazz club in San Jose that presented world class jazz artists on a regular basis. Through the friendship and encouragement of Garden City's house pianist, Smith Dobson Anthony gained the confidence needed to make the decision to make music the focus of his life. Upon graduating in 1994 with a Bachelor of Music degree, Anthony became busy not only with jazz projects, but also forays into world music, hip-hop, rock and R&B. Ive always had a spirit of adventure, when it comes to embracing different genres of music; but sooner or later, I always come back to my jazz roots. In fact, I think my lifelong love of jazz informs just about everything I do musically. As a jazz pianist, Anthony has performed with many of Southern California's most accomplished artists. He has performed at the Monterey Jazz Festival, among numerous others. He plays regularly in clubs around San Diego County, leading his own groups and serving as a sideman in others.
