JMy sons recent 'sing out loud and repeat' tune was Shari Lewis' made up words for The Russian Sailors Dance from 'Red Poppy', "When your spinning you appear to be winning but please move over your foot is in my nose." Today all through the grocery store it was Dont Put Your Fingers in Your Nose with his sister on backup vocals and almost harmony. Calling this one a win.

Hi Anita,
Just wanted to drop you a note…nice to see you and hang out a bit in Buffalo last week. Most importantly, how great to hear your work Disarming The Tempest.
Disarming The Tempest is certainly a significant piece of music. You handled a challenging subject in an artistic framework with grace and dignity. I am so impressed with how you balanced the inherent tension of the music with a very human lyricism.
This piece works on so many levels…obviously it is a substantial technical and musical statement, and yet it is approachable by any listener of any background level.
Obviously, I enjoyed it. Best wishes for your continued successes.

It was an ordinary visit to Facebook pages that led me to a post about Anita Brown. I clicked and found a Magic Kingdom, an Alice in Wonderland tumble...what a talent; what a heart and what a mind. The heart of her music is HER heart. The lyrics and analysis of her pieces read like a novel... Thank you Ms Brown, thank you very much. What an extraordinary talent you are..and how utterly extraordinary for me to happen upon you on this ordinary Sunday evening, so not, now.

My name is Nate Kimball - I'm a composer & trombonist out in Las Vegas, NV. I've had the pleasure over the past few years to help Pat Bowen rehearse his fantastic jazz bands over at the Las Vegas Academy of Performing Arts on a part-time basis. I just wanted to personally thank you for writing such wonderful and inspiring music! They're currently working on your chart "Quagmire", and I must say - it is a beastly work! It's great that you can write music which has so much color, sincerity and density, then turn around and write something that can blow faces off the front row. Your versatility & maturity as a writer is inspirational -- I hope at some point in my life I can reach the level of personal & spiritual success you clearly have, as exuded in your fantastic pieces.

Take care,
-Nate K.

Anita -
Finally listened to Stand and saw the video on the site. I'm so sorry I couldn't make it that day but it was great to hear the whole piece and see the drill team. I thought the music was so evocative of that day and all that followed. Great solos and a terrific performance overall. Congratulations!

Thank you for the wonderful Program in Nyack yesterday. We attended at the urging of our son, Brian. Your mentorship of Brian in his High School years helped save his life and we are eternally grateful to you. He and his family(wife and 2 year old daughter) now live in Cinncinati. God Bless !!!

Hi Anita,

Nice reconnecting with you on Facebook. You were the best music teacher I ever had -- of course I took it all for granted at the time. You know what they say about youth -- wasted on the young. You really were (and still are) so young at heart and generous with your self and your time. When I was younger, I just didn't understand how talented you were because I didn't know enough about music. But I still remember so many of the things you put together, and the arrangements. I especially remember Lenny Kravitz "Let Love Rule". . .you put so much energy into all you did, it really made it special for everyone.

Recently I was in a psychiatric hospital in Boston and one of the clinicians there was running a music group. I told him about one of the activities you did with us in Middle School -- having us draw on paper how different pieces of music made us feel. In particular, I remember "Rite of Spring". . .I kept the drawing I did for a long time. Anyway, they tried it at the hospital and everyone loved it. Everything we do touches more people than we know. Especially people like YOU who reach out to others so much and are so warm and loving. Good luck with all your projects. If anyone deserves all the support they can get, financial or otherwise -- it's you.
Thanks so much for the great memories! ~ Faith

Words & Music by Anita Brown

It was plain as day to see (though surprisingly) smiles for me
And we laughed through the night, maybe ‘til three.
What he did not see is that it was meant to be
A sparkling fancy naturally.

An unlikely pair, for sure. Fascinatingly, seems so pure.
He was staunch military, such a Marine.
He lives ev’ry moment like he was seventeen,
His fav’rite toys is all he needs.

He is proudly in command of his C-H Fifty Three.
Just complete the mission: please be good to me.
Oh, with his trident of prowess, wit and charm;
Noble “Alpha Librae,” Sempre Fi!

Major Nepenthe, won’t you take me away from the pain, Sir?
Not even you can hold it back.
Major Nepenthe, oh please show me the way to your heart, Sir,
Like only you can take me there,
You can take me there, you can take me there.

And oh, what a friend to have as a champion ‘til the end,
As he lives just to serve, to protect and play,
With a dash of whimsy, frolic and modesty
A boy turned man so valiantly.

Although ev’ry now and then a little amorous, he pretends
To be not really watching carefully.
An unflinching, skillful, spirited, grand, White Steed,
The shining pride of USMC.

Mrs. Gayle Leonardelli

I play lead tenor in an all-women big band in Maine. I'm very interested in women jazz musicians, especially composers. We have had one piece written for us by a woman, and we are currently working with an arranger, but he happens to be a man. Another exciting experience was having Toshiko Akyoshi work with us! I'd love to have your opinion on our band. Please visit our website

It's the guy from the West Village bar! Sorry, like many a man before me, my alcohol consumption is affecting my writing skills. I should sign off before I embarass myself. Sadly, I am no Poe. I'll see you at Village Vanguard next Monday??.

Nice to meet you,

Anita, We most definitely agree with have the soul of a poet as well as a musician! After reading your blog, we just had to respond to the "retraction" of visuals. For what reason would someone do this? You talk about the reasons in your blog because you are your own "Devil's Advocate", and we highly respect that you always see "the other side" to every story.... you are a good soul and they are very lucky to have ever even known you. BUT, what does this person think??!! Does this person think that it is strictly the pictures that inspire you to write such breathtakingly beautiful music?? What an arrogant, self-absorbed person this must be! We love your music, your lyrics, your blog and your soul.......keep movin' on were amazing before him, amazing during him & even more amazing after him!

Congrats! I need to use this for our dive shop blog, can i use it?

Hey Anita,
Wanted to check out your blog. Looking for a good book on notation because I have been told by many musicians who have been tortured by my original charts (on more than one occasion) that my notation chops suck. (Usually bass players and drummers.) I always seem to write roadmaps that take people to Mars via the NJ Turnpike when writing a Coda. I'd love to take one of your workshops, but live kind of far (Georgia.) Got any suggestions?

Charlie Jennison

August 24, 2009

Anita - you most definitely have the soul of a poet as well as a musician. Your description of the art work inspiring your latest project is absolutely delicious! Can't wait to hear the music!
A big fan always - Charlie Jennison
