Leone Thomas - Thank You Baby Pt. 1 - Don

70s SoulPosted by Martin Fri, June 10, 2011 15:23:50

Mainly a jazz singer, East St. Louis native Leon Thomas (Leone from ´74 and onwards) studied music at Tennessee State University. He relocated to New York in 1958 where he joined a show sponsored by the famous Apollo Theatre. He sang and recorded with some of the all time greats in jazz music; Count Basie and Louis Armstrong to name but two. Today's track illustrates Thomas' more soulful side. Released in 1975 on a local New York label, this track was recorded in several versions and also issued by at least two different labels. I have opted for this version, as it is the one which my mate Oskar made into a winner at the Soulville! nights a few years ago. Enjoy!
