Liner Notes
IT IS OFTEN DIFFICULT TO DESCRIBE IN WORDS THE EMOTION THAT IS INVOLVED IN CREATIVE VENTURES. THIS IS ONE OF THOSE SITUATIONS. WHEN WE DECIDED TO RECORD JOE THOMAS, WE WONDERED HOW WE COULD POSSIBLY CAPTURE THE DEEP DEDICATION THAT LIES WITHIN HIS SOUL. JOE IA A PRIME EXAMPLE OF STILL WATERS RUNNING DEEP. HIS QUITE, CALM FACADE BELIES THE EXCITEMENT AND IMAGINATION THAT EXPLODES WHEN HE LITERALLY LOSES HIMSELF IN HIS MUSIC. LISTEN TO HIM WEAVE A SIMPLE, YET INTRICATE PATTERN IN, OVER, AND AROUND, THE BIG BAND ARRANGEMENTS OF "TALK TO ME." FEEL HIM SPREADING HIS HAPPY HEART TO THE WORLD SELLING THE DELIGHTFUL COMBINATION OF "CHITLINS AND CUCHIFRITOS". A TOTAL MESSAGE OF TOGETHERNESS. EXPAND WITH JOE INTO THE WORLD OF THE EBONY GODFATHER WHEN THE THEME SONG GRABS YOUR SOUL, TENDERLY BUT FIRMLY. WALK DOWN BROADWAY WITH JOE AND LET HIM MUSICALLY DESCRIBE THE ACTIONS OF THE MANY "FANCY FANNIES" TRIPPIN' AND TRICKIN' ALONG THE GREAT WHITE WAY. TAKE YOUR FAVORITE LADY IN YOUR ARMS, TURN THE LAMP DOWN LOW, AND LET JOE THOMAS RAP IN YOUR BEHALF WITH HIS SMOOTH RENDITION OF "BE ANYTHING BE MINE". GUARANTEED YOU'LL GET OVER. YES, JOE THOMAS IS A MASTER CRAFTSMAN, AND HIS CRAFT IS ONE OF HYPNOTISM, SEDUCTION, AND SATISFACTION, ALL ACCOMPLISHED VIA HIS BEWITCHING FLUTE. JOE THOMAS IS THE MODERN PIED PIPER OF CONTEMPORARY MUSIC, AND MANY MORE WILL FOLLOW HIM TO THE END OF THE RAINBOW. JOE THOMAS IS SMOOTHER THAN SATIN. JOE THOMAS IS FUNKIER THAN TEN CANS OF MAGIC SHAVE. JOE THOMAS IS MELLOWER THAN BIG AL'S CORDON BLUE. JOE THOMAS IS AS RIGHTEOUS AS TRUTH. JOE THOMAS IS A MAN OF MANY MOODS AND MANY GROOVES, BUT MORE IMPORTANT, JOE THOMAS IS THE EBONY GODFATHER AND WE'VE NEEDED ONE FOR SO VERY LONG. PEACE, BUDDY SCOTT ARRANGED BY: CHICO O'FARRILL PRODUCED BY: BUDDY SCOTT RECORDED AT: STUDIO 6 WEST, NEW YORK CITY PHOTOGRAPHY BY: LEBARON TAYLOR
