Note Of Interest: On "The Scholar" which is a duet of bagpipe (Pat Sky) and guitar, most people think Tom is playing lead guitar. He is not. He is playing slide guitar on that tune.
Thanks go out to: John Masters - Treasure Hunter and Musician - for his vocal contributions to this project. John was part of the team that located and discovered Blackbeard's flagship, Queen Anne's Revenge, off the coast of North Carolina.... To Patrick Sky for his bagpipe playing on the traditional song The Scholar. Pat has a long and interesting history in 60s - 70s Folk Music, and his songs have been recorded by artists from Buffy St.Marie to John Kaye (Steppenwolf) to Dave Van Ronk and George Thotogood..... To Jim Meyer - Musician, friend and collaborator - for his lyrical contributions to this project.

Recorded, Mixed and Mastered by Too Tall Tom at Thunderstorm Hollow in Bakersville, North Carolina
Too Tall Tom was playing the competitive Asbury Park, NJ music scene from the age of 15, when he still had to have his parent's permission to be in the clubs. In the 1990s he decided to go back to school to study Electronic Music production and eventually landed a job as an Adjunct Professor at a highly respected NJ community college.
In 2001 he and Suzi moved to the Southern Appalachian Mountains in North Carolina and he began playing the bars in and around Asheville, but tiring of the traveling, he decided to devote 100% of his time writing and recording music. He rarely appears live now, but those rare live appearances only add to the legend.
He has 10 albums of his own and has appeared on many more. He has been called "One of the best slide guitarists anywhere" by many of his musical peers and has won several accolades locally and nationally, including the title of Best Electric Slide Guitarist at the 1999 National Slide Guitar Festival in Gray, Tenn.
One of his fan/friends (Alice Harlow, Celtic Harp player) recently remarked that "Tom puts on no airs. He doesn't have a huge ego. He will jam with anyone, even beginners, and have fun doing it. That's the kind of guy Tom is, and that's probably why he's not more well known, but if you hear his stuff, there is no doubt in your mind that he's one of the greats."
