Album Review

Since his debut as a leader in 1989, multi-instrumentalist Jay Thomas has been a force to be reckoned with, though most of his CDs are somewhat challenging to find. Thomas alternates between flügelhorn, trumpet, tenor sax, and soprano sax on these 1994 sessions made for the Canadian label Jazz Focus, joined by a rhythm section consisting of pianist Travis Shook, bassist Phil Sparks, and drummer Jon Wikan. Thomas' conversational technique on flügelhorn in the rapid-fire treatment of John Lewis' "Afternoon in Paris" is reminiscent of Clark Terry. He doubles on trumpet and tenor sax on John Coltrane's strutting blues vehicle "Up Against the Wall," with the group augmented by the addition of baritone saxophonist John Goforth and trombonist Greg Schroeder. His tender ballad "Song for Joanne" finds him leading off with a heartfelt soprano sax solo before switching back to tenor sax. This brilliant musician is long overdue for wider recognition; this is easily one of his best efforts on CD.
