Welcome! I'm Thomas, a freelance jazz musician based in Guangzhou, in the south of China.
I play upright

To get an impression of my bass playing, check out this video recorded at the Hope and Sesame, duo with saxophonist Joe Longardner. I also book the bands for this cool bar, go to the contact page for more info!
And below you'll find an interview and music recorded by J2, a television station based in Hong Kong. (Cantonese only)
