Jazzed Up

This is a blog about a certain Mr. Samuel Thornton. He’s a friend of mine. He’s also a jazz musician, and is exceptional.

He’s currently playing in a band, but it’s his solo stuff I want to bring up tonight. It’s just brilliant. The sort of stuff I’d totally not usually be into. But it’s just fantastic.


Sam’s the sort of guy who writes WWS – which when I first heard it, I assumed was a cover of something really famous – on a half-hour lunch break. Listen in particular, though, to Someone Like You – a duet with the equally talented Hayley Gaftarnick – which is just gorgeous.

It’s important to realise, by the way, that Sam is a guy in his mid 20s. I still, after about four years of knowing him, can’t get my head around the fact that he’s not a 70 year old alcoholic living in New Orleans.
