"His liquid delivery is like rich chocolate...like Nat King Cole." Cadence Magazine 

Richard "Cookie" Thomas packed the house his first visit to the Pizzeria last spring, and gave a sensational show. He returns with a great trio of Dave Childs, piano, Rich Zurkowski, bass, and Roger Post, on drums. Cookie's career began in Philadelphia in 1960 when he had the opportunity at fourteen to open for B.B. King. A classic jazz vocalist inspired by Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, and Johnny Hartman, he shines on standards but "this crooner's home turf is the romantic ballad." He's performed at the Jackie Robinson Jazz Festival, Carlyle and Waldorf Astoria hotels in NYC, Foxwoods Casino, Levitt Pavilion, and the Rich Forum and Palace Theater in Stamford, CT.
