by HOWARD SMITH

'... hear classics from a new, fascinating standpoint ...'

Tom Collier plays Haydn, Mozart, Telemann and others. © 2012 Origin Classical

As a small kid, Tom was taken by his dad to hear the great vibraphone player Lionel Hampton. Collier never looked back. He gave his first public performance at the age of five in 1954 and marked the fiftieth anniversary of that performance with a concert at Brechimin Auditorium in Seattle in April 2004.

During five-and-a-half decades in the business, Collier has performed in concert and on recordings with a showtime who's who -- Ry Cooder, Victor Feldman, Shelly Manne, Laurindo Almeida, Buddy DeFranco, Peggy Lee, Herb Ellis, Bill Mays, Sammy Davis Jr, Johnny Mathis, Olivia Newton-John, The Mills Brothers, Della Reese and so forth...
