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.

Listen.

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.
