ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hi-Charlie Thomas here, 76 years young and still going strong.
While working as a Police Officer in California I became interested in the tenor banjo.I bought one and taught myself how to play. Alltho it was all by ear as I never did learn how to read music. I finally aquired enought skill that I was invited to play with the Sacramento Banjo Band. I was with them for 12 years but also played gigs in the pizza palor scene and sat in with many Dixie Land Jazz Bands in the Stockton, Ca. Area.
Sometime back I became interested in the key board and started teaching mysels how to play. I finally put the banjo under the bed and devoted all my time to the keyboard.
Most of my music is from the Big Band era. Altho I do play some Latin and Dixie styles. For some years I played at the RV Resorts in and around Arizona for the Snow Birds. A real fine groupe of people and my music was well recieved by them. I'am sure some of them are still enjoying the tapes I was making at that time.

My CD, MEMORIES OF YOU has a little Dixie-Latin but most of it is in the style from the big band era as it would be played by a up tempo six piece combo. In the lead song, MEMORIES OF YOU I attempted to put it in a style that would be somewhat like the style of Benny Goodman. Just a JUST A CLOSER WALK WITH THEE is in a slow Dixie style as you would hear it played in New Orleans.
And SOMEWHERE MY LOVE-??? Really not Big Band is it-??
AVALON-good vibes and up beat.Try them all. I'am sure you will find something you will like and enjoy.
At my age-76 and now a widow I no longer do outside gigs.
But I hope I can still get my music to those who may enjoy it.
Don't forget to write me a review as to what you think.
Best to all -Charlie Thomas
