"Press Quotes"

“A mind blowing epic mix of jazz, prog and world music.” Veneto West Newsletter - Spring 2004
"A very textured and spacey mix of prog rock, jazz fusion, and avant-garde sounds.” Pete Pardo Sea of Tranquility - March 2004

"Mahavishnu Orchestra, comes to mind pretty quickly, also Anthony's guitar style reminds me of Sonny Sharrock. Steve Tibbets, Weather Report, and Power Tools also come to mind when listening. There are elements of jazz fusion, funk, world-prog, prog-metal and other styles and textures running throughout this well-made album." Dave Wright Progressive Ears - 26 May 2004

“The Antman’s vocabulary includes the snarls and tremolo free-for-alls that come from the best atonally oriented “rock” guitaroids like Andy Gill, Hendrix, and Thurston Moore.” Rob Thornton RTFM – September 1994

>>>Anthony Curtis>>>>
“An electric guitar that moans and burbles to his touch…like the long, winding improvisations of Southern field hollers and church moans.” Clarke Bustard Richmond Times-Dispatch – August 1989

“Anthony is one of the most technically advanced guitarists on the planet and a truly unique artist.” Veneto West Newsletter - Spring 2004

“Richmond is lucky enough to call guitar player Anthony Curtis one of its own.” Jay Smack Ninevolt – April 2004

“Renowned for his inventive fret-board mastery, Curtis plays like a wild banshee capable of making a guitar squeal, moan and emote in ways once thought unimaginable.” Chris Bopst - March 2004

“Anthony Curtis’ guitar work has always resisted easy categorization. Some call it prog, some space rock, others heavy fusion. He’s often compared to Sonny Sharrock and Dave Fuiczinski.” Richmond Music Journal – May 2004

“Anthony Curtis plays with conviction and a rare technical command.” Jim Ferguson Guitar Player Magazine – July 1989

“Anthony’s virtuosity is tremendous, he is new music.” Pat Martino 1987

Feeling a bit camera shy


Anthony's new album encases and reveals his influences.

"From one of the most unbelievable guitar talents since Robert Fripp, Book Of The Key highlights the methods of Anthony Curtis, backed up by an impressive array of collaborators: Tony Levin (King Crimson, Peter Gabriel), Mike Keneally (Frank Zappa), Lewis Pragasam, Jeff Gauthier and Ronan Chris Murphy. A rich tapestry of layers that will take years of pleasurable listens to peel away."
