“I’ve known Steve for more than 30 years, and I’ve always been struck by his solos. He tells a story with his exquisite note choices. I can’t wait to hear what’s next!”

—John Temmerman; saxophonist, composer, bandleader

“Whether improvising a bebop line or interpreting a written melody, Steve Thomas is an especially talented soloist. As a sideman, his musical contributions seamlessly improve the sound of almost any group. Steve is also a consummate professional, always conducting himself in a professional and respectful manner.”

—Jim Sellers; Pianist, composer, bandleader

“I have been associated with Steve Thomas for a few years now. Our relationship in the music industry is on a professional level and I have had the pleasure of not only mixing live sound for him, but also have recorded and engineered Steve in the studio. His focus and professionalism allow him to participate in several genres of music, being a quick learner and very steady bass player.”

—Ted Ostling; Recording engineer

“From the first time we played together, nearly 30 years ago, Steve has been one of my favorite trumpet players. He’s a uniquely musical player, on an instrument that can sometimes get the better of a less team-oriented musician. He’s also highly responsible, and just an all-around fine person and human being.”

—Steven Hashimoto; Bassist, composer, bandleader
