Thomas Jones, in his own words:
"I have played piano since childhood in a rich and wide-ranging music career. From fancy country clubs to jazz clubs and society soirees, from dusty dives and rowdy saloons, from concert halls to recording studios, to exciting years playing ragtime on steamboats up and down the Mississippi River system. It is an amazing experience. I am blessed to know many incredible people and enjoy countless treasured friendships.

There is another side of my music. Through the years there’s rarely been a time I haven’t played in church on a regular basis. I have always been in awe over the great and powerful ways that music brings us closer to God. To play before the Lord has always been my delight, and a fulfillment beyond words.

My music ministry is based in the choir loft of St. Mary’s Church in Orono, Maine, where, for the past dozen years or so it has been my privilege to play a beautifully restored Estey pipe organ. It is here, and also on the recordings of my 'peaceful piano music' that you will hear the music of my heart."
