A truly remarkable/unique voice that – once heard – stays with you for a long long time. The first time I watched/heard Tom Jones was in Ethiopia in the early 70’s in one of his TV shows and I was hooked then/there. Listening to his music again – ignoring the nostalgia bit – his success for me comes to 2 specific elements; great voice and equally important great music style that brings this vocal talent into sharp focus. I am hoping to publish at some point a trumpet piece for his song Thunderball from the James Bond movie a song composed by the equally brilliant John Barry.

Hope you enjoy!
