Guitarist Mark Whitfield speaks about After the Mix," from his album Mark Whitfield featuring Panther
(Dirty Soap, 2005), intoning that although the album seems like a diverse collection of musical styles, it is really just my collective vision of the things that I appreciate about music. It's about the group ... It's about the experience of being independent."
Whitfield gives credit to his brother and sister for first introducing him to the guitar and to his parents for fostering a love for music.
Still, Whitfield shrugs off being described as a child prodigy, discussing his career in general and recent releases like Mark Whitfield featuring Panther (Dirty Soap, 2005) and the upcoming Songs of Wonder (Mark Whitfield and George Fontenette, 2009) in Trish Richardson's informative interview, Quick Whit.
