I heard your interview with Ron Shaw last night, and just read your biography. Very impressive, not to mention interesting! Ron was right, there was not enough time to share your "story" all on one show. I wanted to let you know I enjoyed the show, and your website. Would have been nice to hear a bit of your musical talents! You are a humble man. Wishing you the best. Take care, be well.
Comment From Bruce Loeffert:
Thom & Lorry, what a Great Job the two of you have done creating this website... Looking at those photos from the 70s - 90s brought back so many memories. I remember coming to see Brownie's Revenge at Trude Heller's place in the Village. The musicians in that band were awesome. I use to watch Thom play and just marvel at his level of musicianship. To me what was even more impressive was that Thom was so modest and always willing to talk with everyone. Including me, a long haired, skinny teenage guitarist that would watch in amazement when Thom took solos on the sax. Great memories. While Thom was on Tour with the Joffrey Ballet I played Trude Hellers with the group I was in called Pegasus in the mid-70s.
All the best,

Comment From Chris Remediani:
I was a student at Five Towns College from Sept. '82 to June, '84. Mr. Gambino was my professor for a class titled "JazzStyles." I remember many things from the class and still have the text which I thumb through from time to time.
