ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The self titled debut jazz album by guitarist Tommy Kay has garnered rave reviews across the board and has been featured in Vintage Guitar among others. A true virtuoso, Tommy shocases his amazing skills alongside Michael Carr on the Hammond B3 Organ and Sinclair Lott on drums. The CD encompasses several jazz styles from Bossa Nova to Bop as well as Tommy's own interpretation of the classic "Moonlight In Vermont". Some of the reviews already are: "A really great record!! Wonderful guitar playing!"
- Andy Summers (Guitarist w/The Police and solo artist)

"I love it! I really love it! It's real!!" -John Pisano (Guitarist w/ Joe Pass, Herb Alpert, etc.)

"This sounds so great! Great tone and you cats are really playing! ... Keep on doin' what you're doin' because it's working!" -Ted Greene (Guitarist Extraordinaire)

Named by legendary jazz great Ted Greene as one of LA's best all around guitar players, Tommy Kay's musical history is diverse to say the least. During a five year stint with East Coast musician Joe Beard, he backed up numerous Soul and Blues greats including Rufus Thomas, Jimmy Dawkins, Eddie Shaw and many others. Tommy has toured with the multi-Grammy nominee band Roomful Of Blues, recorded with the seminal LA roots band King Cotton, and toured and recorded with Fleetwood Mac/Bonnie Raitt guitarist Rick Vito. Recently, he has toured with The Blues Brothers, Sam Moore, R & B star Montell Jordan, and done recording sessions for Tank, as well as sessions for many modern gospel recording artists.

Also to his credit are numerous film soundtrack projects, including work for Steven Segal, HBO, and independent feature films. However, it is his debut CD that truly showcases his talent.

Stonkin guitar backed real grunt and groove B3
CD opens with a real belter, Four Steps, and carries on with slick licks all the way through. Particularly liked Oh Kay! and Michael Carr on B3 throughout makes this a must have CD for all Jimmy Smith fans!

Great listening! Terrific groove, slick feel.
Infectious groove, I keep coming back for more. Sinclair Lott's supportive drumming was a foundational pillar to some very hip stuff up top.
