Thomas J. West is an active music teacher, performer, composer, adjudicator, and clinician in the greater Philadelphia area. He has over thirty years of experience as a clarinetist, saxophonist, and vocalist. Mr. West has performed professionally with concert bands, jazz bands, and a cappella groups.

Thomas primarily plays jazz standards on both clarinet and saxophone and can adapt many pop songs into a solo jazz idiom. Thomas provides his own recorded accompaniment and can take requests for hundreds of songs. Mr. West can also play without accompaniment for wedding ceremonies, memorial services, and other special occasions. Thomas is also willing to partner with other musicians for your event to perform jazz standards or other popular music. Thomas will work with you to craft a set list that is a perfect match for your special occasion, including taking your requests in advance and preparing your favorite songs for you.

Thomas uses a very basic setup for his performances that includes a portable, powered amplifier, SM-58 microphone and stand, laptop with a portable audio interface, an iPad, and a clarinet and saxophone. He is easily able to occupy the corner of a room, a backyard porch, a lobby area, or any size stage and can route his sound to a house system if needed.

Thomas has performed as a member of the Penn State Marching Blue Band, The Cadets Drum and Bugle Corps, and KeyStone A Cappella. He has studied jazz improvisation with Dennis DiBlasio and jazz arranging with Jimmie Amadie. Notable performances include World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, The Queen in Wilmington, The Princeton Festival, and WHYY's Connections Festival at Penn's Landing.

Mr. West performs a Facebook Live online streaming show regularly that you are invited to attend for free to see him in action. Search for me on the web.

This was a gift to celebrate my retirement. I enjoyed Mr West's performance. He is very personable and talented. I could not answer the question about special requests....I didn't have any however, I do not know what was discussed with the person who made the arrangements.
