THE THOMAS BAND AT MOOSE HALL 1968 - Volume 1
These two volumes of The Thomas Band at Moose Hall in 1968 lay in the vaults of the Connecticut Traditional Jazz Club for 32 years - but now they can be enjoyed again by a new generation of jazz fans. The music is a fresh as the day it was recorded!
When this concert was recorded Kid Thomas was in splendid shape although he was already 72! The full personnel are Kid Thomas Valentine trumpet and vocals, Manny Paul tenor saxophone, Louis Nelson trombone, Charlie Hamilton piano, Joseph 'Twat' Butler string bass and Sammy Penn drums.
