For decades I have loved the virtuosic African fingerstyle work of my friend Tony Cox. This started as a fingerstyle exercise inspired by Tony, but later evolved into a song after meeting a beautiful waitress called Anna Rosa, at a seaside restaurant, in Maputo Mozambique. She was as beautiful and inspiring as Bob Dylan’s muse in ‘Mozambique’, from his masterpiece ‘Desire’, to which I make reference. This song was once playlisted in France. To this day, Anna Rosa doesn’t know a song was written for her.
