Steve Thomas: Home

Steve b/w

"Steve Thomas . . . writes innovative, eclectic jazz pieces that embrace witty wordplay and world music influences, and he scats great, too." --pianist/producer Mark Shilansky

"Steve's music orbits within the jazz cosmos, but mixes in Brazilian, funk, Stax, and other streams. Steve’s band is jazz even for people who don’t really like jazz (as well for those who do!) because it is song-oriented; it is not endless blowing—his songs have defined structures and varying textures. Jazz lyrics are often beside the point when they’re not a distraction. Steve’s are neither of those. They include very interesting observations embedded within his story-telling." --David Vermette, electric bass
