    France Musique have posted a video of Stan Getz in 1971 which includes some nice footage of Rene Thomas (his solo starts at 5:00):

    My trumpet playing friend told me a story about Rene Thomas's daughter

    Apparently, she was going out with a musician and told him who her father was.

    The guy said something like, "Rene Thomas, he was just a Jimmy Raney copycat."

    She proceeded to punch him square in the face.

    I think the original story is even funnier, I don't remember the details. Love Rene's playing. I think he'd fit right in with Wes and Grant Green especially the way he played in the 60s.

    I almost got in a fight with the musician who married Rene's daughter, because I put down RT's last album! I was lucky a friend of mine restrained the dude!
