Joseph Samuel Thomas (May 31, 1933 - July 26, 2017) was an American jazz flutist and occasional saxophonist. As a child, Thomas learned to play alto and soprano saxophone, trombone, flute and piano, and also taught himself how to write music. Encouraged by his older brother, he began performing in clubs from the age of fifteen and was noticed by James Moody.
Thomas’ first solo albums, 2005’s platinum-certified album ‘Something To Be’ and 2009’s ‘cradlesong’ generated the hit singles Lonely No More, This is How A Heart Breaks, Her Diamonds and Someday. Something to Be’ became the first album by a male artist from a rock/pop group to debut at on the Billboard 200 since the chart had debuted. With ‘cradlesong’, he made history once again as the only male artist with multiple hits at Adult Top 40, with most by a solo male artist in the chart’s history. Thomas released his 3rd solo album ‘The Great Unknown' in 2015.
