ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Thomas Ventiquattro II (Tom 24) began learning to play the guitar at age 11, and wrote his first songs at age 13. Tom grew up in the late '60s/early '70s, and was influenced by groups such as the Bee Gees, America, Bread, Lobo and the Eagles. Tom states, "I was mesmerized by string orchestra-enhanced pop melodies and tight harmonies...the sounds of heaven." Listeners have compared Tom's vocals to Barry Gibb, Robin Gibb, Jose Feliciano and Tony Orlando.

"Twilight Blue Excursion" is a compilation of 15 works taken from an ongoing studio demo project that began in 1996. Tom 24 had been writing and performing (solo vocalist/guitar) for several years prior to this recording venture. Producer Dan "the magic man" Wills shared his many talents via bass, drums and keyboards...helping Tom discover the mellow sound he'd been searching for. In The fall of 2004, Earl Beecher of California based Morrhythm/Outstanding Records assisted Tom & Dan with the release of this CD.

Cdbaby artist Chris Ellis (After the Apocalypse) wrote this review concerning the song, "Twilight Blue Excursion"..."(Tom), you transport the listener so that it feels as if he's walking down that lonely road. You have done a remarkable job integrating the pre-chorus and chorus..."and then you wonder just what she's doing now..." into the tune, so that it not only sounds like a natural progression, but a bit of a surprise each time it occurs. What I'm laboring to say is that the transition is perfect. This is a song I long to hear more of--I'm disappointed when it ends (and that's the way it should be)."

The following is a sampling of comments from music publishers in response to demo submissions (1996-2004):

"...obvious talent..." -Solana Records

"...impressed with (artist's) ability..."-Platinum Plus Records International

"...nice work...a better writer than most...keep at it!" -Alex Hoover, G Major Music (BMI)

"...good talent level and vocals..." -Avalon Hughes, Avalon Music (ASCAP,BMI)

"...outstanding music..." -Bill Dillon, Otto Publishing Co. (ASCAP)

The style of music on this album will take baby boomers on a stroll down memory lane...back to that magical period from 1967-75...when soft rock vocal groups ruled the radio air waves. Let this CD take you on a "Twilight Blue Excursion" of easy-listening pleasure.

Good stuff Tom!
This is music you can do just about anything to: relax, cook, clean, write, compute; it's easy living as well as enjoyable listening. Thanks Tom for being willing to sound like Thomas Ventiquattro II and not another carbon copy. This is good stuff!

Mike Wheaton ( long time freind)

Really well done Tom it's great music and singing!
This is a great cd, with really nice songs on it. This has been written and recorded with emotion and feeling in it and that makes it special. Good work Tom!

Barb from upstate N.Y.

wonderful listening pleasure for all age groups!!!!!
Fifteen easy listening heartfelt lyrics with a wealth of talent shining through. A welcome change in the music world. Highly recommend this debut CD by Tom 24.



A wonderful collection of uplifting poetry – timeless lyrics in a shell of Classic Folk style. Nicely done! Simple and effective in their delivery, these compositions nevertheless deserve the complement of the elaborate studio production enjoyed by Popular songs today.
