Performance & Recording:

This latest release evokes the sleazy world of 1940s basement bars and demonstrates how the sax remains a truly emotional instrument. Discarding the flurry of of notes approach, Pete makes each note count and every blast tells a story. The title track sets the tone with its steamy lines, while the ballad Love Them is sumptuously refined. This is a superb package for any aspiring player as well as fans of this timeless style

– Keith Ames – (Musician Magazine)

Pete Thomas delivers an unabashed , R & B tinged love letter…this is meat and potatoes, served with a hot sauce.

– Clive Davis (Sunday Times review of Mr Lucky)

Storming sax from top exponent Pete, who benefits both from having the talent to compose a string of blistering numbers and the opportunity to call upon a crack team of supporting musicians…Riveting across all 16 tracks.
– Keith Ames – (Musician Magazine)

Thomas plays an impressive growling saxophone that has a humourous, teasing air of menace.
– Mary Ellison (Jazz Express)

Pete Thomas, saxophonist sublime…Thomas’s saxophone playing is something special.
– Richard Mazda (New Hi FiSound)

His first album gives only a brief idea of what he can do but jazz purists cannot sneer at him.You don’t have to look constipated to take a good solo.
– Jack Massarik (The Wire)

Thomas is a demonic player, abrasive and articulate.
– Russell Lack (The Wire)

Pete Thomas is indisputably an accomplished saxophone player and this is beautifully exemplified on the echoey, haunting Raptures.
– Karen Faux (Music Week)

It would be difficult to find a musician more unpretentious and unaffected than Pete Thomas.
– Simon Mills (Girl About Town)

Pete Thomas’s dirty sax rules…
– Lloyd Bradley (Q Magazine)

Someone ought to erect a monument to Pete Thomas for services to rock music. (Before you rave about **** check this guy out for yourself).
Music Magazine

Only when Pete Thomas arrives on stage to blow a few screaming choruses through a tenor which is large enough on him to scuff his shoes do you feel that a kindred spirit may be in the building.

PRODUCTION:

Producer Pete Thomas has done what the Chevaliers could not achieve on vinyl, inducing enough light and shade to create a vibrant and well balanced album.
– P.F. (Time Out)

The arrangements, all by the talented Pete Thomas, make the Giants’ four man front line as full as a big band.
– Jack Massarik (Evening Standard)

Pete Thomas’ razor sharp arranging gives the band a depth and power with its clever lifts.
– Dave Ilic (City Limits)
