RadioIndy is pleased to present Butch Thomas with a GrIndie Award for their CD "Butch Thomas"
Butch Thomas' self-titled album is an outstanding collection of Nu-Jazz songs brought to you by an industry veteran. Butch's Tenor and Soprano Sax on the album is as smooth as silk. His arrangements are solid and his style is innovative and very modern. Overall, the musicianship on the CD is tremendous and the sound quality is excellent as well. Highlights are the opener "Blues for Miles" taking you back to the 70's a bit with cop show synths and a memorable Sax performance. "Ooga Booga" has some fun percussion elements, but keeps it nice and smooth. "You Dig" is a progressive jazz number with impressive drum work and another solid Sax performance. If you enjoy smooth jazz saxophone and big name artists such as Kenny G or Wayne Shorter, you'll enjoy this CD.
