Thomas Albert has been an active composer for over five decades; his music has been performed throughout the United States as well as in Europe, Brazil, Japan, and Korea.
“Thomas Albert’s ‘The Devil’s Handyman’ trumped even Spike Jones in offering swing music that won’t swing, deconstructed jingles and devastating parodies of musical form.”
“The composer’s imaginative, purely instrumental setting finds the humor and feeling in the words that inspired each sections, while his range of sonority was delightfully fresh.”
“The music, acting almost like a cinematic score, pushes pace, strengthens emotional impact and adds a new dimension of jazzy, bebop, and almost a Kerouac feel to much of the material. ”
