Wessell “Warmdaddy” Anderson Wishes To Thank The Following:
I would like to thank the following folks for making this new recording materialize: my wife Mrs. Desimonae Anderson (Desiminimo), my son Wessell L. Anderson IV (Quad), Roland Guerin and sons, Mark Gully, Lawrence Sieberth, Todd Stoll, John Lane. A very special thank you to my mother and father Mr. and Mrs. Wessell L. Anderson for giving me the education and love of music. The great one, the old man, the skainish one himself - Wynton Marsalis, for letting me graciously stand next to the 20th and 21st centuries greatest musician, intellectual, educator (Toonsman), thinker, African American, historian, mystic, explorer and omni-humanitarian on this planet. A man who is a saint in a time of unbelievers of good music acoustically performed -- but rarely recognized. This recording is dedicated to: my sister, the late Susan Lynn Anderson; my aunt, Helen Jones; my very hip and soulful aunt, Sybill Calender; my late grandmother, Betty A. Jones; and my great aunt, Mary Lou Satterwhite; God bless you all!

About The Album
This recording is music composed for the listener to make his or her own judgments about each tune. I purposefully didn’t write liner notes to leave room in the ear of each listener for some space you dig!
-- Saxophonically Yours,
