ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
CT Thompson was born in Monroe, LA, at a time when Rhythm and Blues and Jazz and Blues were flourishing all over. At the age of 9, while listening to the Hoss Man on WLAC out of Nashville, a singing and songwriting dream was formulated. He had been bitten by the showbiz bug, and has not stopped yet. While patterning himself to the likes of Johnny Taylor, Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, and David Ruffin of the Temptations, he entered high school telent shows, city talent shows, signing on the corners and parks, sneaking in nightclubs to hear Tousaint McCall, BB King, T Bone Walker and others around town he was very inspired to continue.

Then the music changed while in college. It changed to psychedelic, Jimi Hendrix, Sly and the Family Stone, Parliament, Earth Wind and Fire. The 60's and early 70's was kicking then, so being an R&B singer was put on the back burner.

Then CT moved to Seattle and picked up the tenor saxophone and began studying saxophone under Joe Brazil at the University of Washington. Joe is one of the legends around Seattle. Then CT moved to Chicago where he played in the horn section for Tyrone Davis, OV Wright, Artie Blues Boy, Little Milton, The Dells, Clarence Carter and many others. He had a chance to meet one of his favorites, the Howlin Wolf. For CT it was a great experience.

Then he moved back to Seattle and began forming bands around town. He had to stop playing saxophone due to dental health. So back to singing where it all began. With some local musician they formed CT and the Record Band and began satisfying audiences all around Seattle.

Everyone moved on and CT is still movin and grooving, continuing to write songs and sing around Seattle. He got the big idea to compile his songs into this CD. It took a long road to get there. Many dues have been paid and the dream is still alive, as he would cry out "But for the grace of all things, holy I go".

Sit back and enjoy this CD and believe dreams can come true.
So congratulations CT, this is a great CD and we're looking forward to your next one.

I really enjoyed this CD, I really am not into this kind of music, but when I heard Into the future I really wanted to let my students listen to the song for inspiration.

Motown and Soul are still alive up in Seattle
CT Thompson is a journeyman, having played sax and sang across the country before settling in Seattle. The true experience is his residency at Thompson's Point of View Restaurant, where he holds court twice weekly with a small and sharp-as-a-tack backup band. Running through a mack truckload of classic soul, motown, and funk covers, CT exudes the raw fun energy of an early 70's house party.


This CD, of all original work, is a true anachronism. Songs rock, roll, soothe, seduce, and goof their way into your ears. Sometimes the production (and album art) may remind one of the 80's, but the gem here is CT's voice, which is planted squarely in the David Ruffin/Wilson Pickett school of soul. Really I could listen to this guy sing the phone book and be on the edge of my seat.


Much like Tiki, where CT is schmaltzy is works as a novelty, and where he lays into his grooves you can rest comfortably knowing this entertainer knows what he's doing. There's few artists out there who can still "bring it" like people used to decades ago, and CT is at the top of his game.
