TGIF August 20: Earl Thomas

by The Editors on August 16, 2010

Earl ThomasHard to believe it’s over, but what better way to shut down the 25th anniversary season of Carlsbadistan’s TGIF Jazz in the Park than with the Blu-ro-so-funk of Earl Thomas playing Calavera Park.

His 1991 major label debut Blue . . . Not Blues blended the sensuality of Stax soul with the grittiness of modern electric blues, but the real indication of his talent is the power of his voice and his knack for crafting memorable contemporary blues and this is what made Earl Thomas one of the most highly respected blues artists in the world.

And he’s playing Carlsbadistan. Earl Thomas is your last chance this summer. He is likely the best vocalist to Carlsbadistan in years. Don’t put TGIF Jazz in the Park off any longer. Just go. Show starts at 6 PM.
