“Critics say Thomas may be the best vocalist to interpret Holiday”, Her vocal styling and portrayal of “Lady Day” have mesmerized audiences across the country.” -St. Louis Jazz Notes

“Few jazz keyboardists have excelled at both piano and organ…On piano, Thomas shows off a sensitive touch, a rich sense of harmony and fleet single-note runs; on organ, he delivers grits, gravy and gospel in satisfying portions…” -maxjazz.com
