In 1979, JT was called to audition for Kool and the Gang. Just two weeks later was his concert debut as lead vocalist. JT brought a unique sound and style to the group that is simultaneously displayed in his song writing. These attributes made an instant impact on his first LP with Kool and the Gang titled "Ladies Night," which spawned two number one R&B and Pop hits "Ladies Night" and "Too Hot." This LP was the beginning of what has become an unprecedented decade of musical creativity and hit making success.
JT has been back in the studio recording material for a new album, turning his immense talents to not only singing and song writing but also producing and engineering the project himself. Though he loves working and collaborating with others JT welcomed the challenge of producing his new CD from start to finish. The fruits of this nurturing time in the recording studio have created an album with a dynamic new sound, capturing the energy of today’s music while holding true to the values that gave him world wide appeal. JT hopes to satisfy his long time fans and attract new ones, across every genre.
