from Daniel Sheehan’s EyeShotJazz.com

Friday night at Tula’s saw a return of Jay Thomas this time with his Trumpet Madness.  Jay Thomas brought Willie Thomas (trumpet), young Seattle trumpeters, John Hansen (piano), Chuck Kistler (bass) and Adam Kessler (drums) to Tula’s.

A versatile multi-instrumentalist, Thomas began to develop his lyrical and bluesy tone as a teen on scholarship to Berklee. He then worked and studied for several years in New York, then, the Bay Area. Later, in Seattle, Thomas became a frequent member of the house band at Parnell’s Jazz Club, working with artists George Cables, Charles McPherson, Bill Mays, Ralph Penland, Harold Land, Diane Schuur, Slim Gaillard and many jazz greats as they traveled through Seattle. Today, he is a member of one of Japan’s leading big bands, where he records and performs several times a year. Often, he shares those star players with audiences in the States.

Featuring his septet – with Jay Thomas (trumpet), Travis Ranney (sax), Dan Marcus (trombone), John Hansen (piano), Greg Williamson (drums), Chuck Deardorf (bass) – legendary Northwest saxophonist Bill Ramsay (baritone saxophone) is among Seattle’s best.

A former member of the Count Basie Orchestra, and a veteran of many of the nation’s outstanding big bands, including the bands of Thad Jones, Cab Calloway, Mel Lewis, Gene Harris, Quincy Jones and the Benny Goodman Octet, Ramsay recently toured the western United States with the Duke Ellington Orchestra (under the direction of Paul Ellington). He was inducted to the Seattle Jazz Hall of Fame in 1997.
