Mike Thornton – Vocalist


“…he sets off fireworks that color the sky with bright colors.”
Jim Santella, Cadence Magazine

“In the jazz-pop spectrum, he fits somewhere between Mark Murphy and Steve Tyrell — not bad company. Thornton celebrates the genius of vocalese great Jon Hendricks, via a scat-laced ‘Joy Spring,’ with similar ease…Some hushed boomer balladry (Lennon and McCartney’s ‘And I Love Her’) help round out the program and underscore Thornton’s winning versatility.”
Mike Joyce, Washington Post

“He’s unique. Twisting each vowel and consonant into a series of related musical tones, he gathers the best of both worlds: the dexterity of an instrumentalist and the lyrical passion of a singer.”
Jim Santella, Cadence Magazine
