From the site:
I met Thumbs when he and his family moved to Atlanta in 1987. About 6 months later he approached me about recording a demo of his trio (The Indecent 3) to offer for sale at his gigs. Each time we got together to work on the project, it had the feel of a type of celebration. And indeed there was reason for celebration. After all he had conquered cancer and for the first time in his life he was fronting his own band and playing exactly what he loved.
