Anthony Caceres has a warm and friendly voice, a swinging style, and the desire to create fresh renditions of superior material, whether it is standards of the past, his originals, or performing current pop tunes into jazz. He is also one of the few artists around today who is very comfortable singing and playing the string bass at the same time.
While he is the first bassist in his family, one could trace Anthony’s musical beginnings to his genes. His grandfather, violinist Emilio Caceres, played both swing and Latin music starting in the 1930s including with Jack Teagarden and Harry James while his grand uncle, Ernie Caceres, was one of the first great baritone-saxophonists, working with Eddie Condon, Jack Teagarden and the original Glenn Miller Orchestra. While the Caceres Brothers performed in San Antonio into the 1960s, unfortunately Ernie passed away before Anthony was born and Emilio had retired by then.
After serving in the Navy for four years, Anthony studied music at San Antonio Community College and the University of North Texas. While he was a late bloomer, he studied hard and gradually caught up to his peers. As a freelance bassist, he toured with the off-Broadway musical production of Miss Saigon and performed with the Four Aces, The Glenn Miller Orchestra, trumpeter Marvin Stamm, pianist Bill Mays, altoist Greg Abate, Grammy Award composer and pianist Jeff Franzel, trombonist Conrad Herwig, Jazz Vocalist Rosanna Vitro, Sebastian Whittaker & The Creators, Freddie Jones Jazz Group, The Pamela York Trio, Drummer Jeff Hamilton, and the late great trombonists Carl Fontana & Bill Watrous among others.
