“If you have never been to a Chris Thomas Band performance then you just don’t know what’s good in Jacksonville.” Eden Kendall, WJXT
“While (Chris) Thomas pays tribute to these singers and arrangers, he doesn’t try to mimic or imitate these vocalists or their notations, instead putting his own original spin on … the lyrics. The only word I can come up with is a simple one: soulful.” Jerry Pearce, Newzbreaker.com
