Now the wheel has come full circle; it's _timeJorjisJo__express_vocally the adventurous new ideas our modern instrumentalists have been working on." At 6 ft. 2 in,, with an impressive background in baseball, basketball and track, Amosis Leontopolis Thomas brings to his craft a powerful physical presence. Now 32, he has spent half his life as a professional singer; at 16 he worked in local clubs and Was~ott~the air regularly in East St. Louis, 111. "That was Miles Davis' home town too," he says. "Everyone was very jazz-oriented there. I could never stick to the melody; I improvised without realizing it. When 7 my brother brought home a bop record of Joe Carrojl singing 'The Champ' with 1 Dizzy Gillespie, I found I could do the same thing, only faster." Thomas' first solo album finds him flying off productively in all directions. As a composer, he offers simple messages advocating universal -peace- and-happiness,-with a lyrical flutist providing sylvan settings. As a blues singer he converts the traditional I-miss- my-baby 12-bar form into a ve- ' hide for social protest: "You can do what you wanna, but I ain't going to Vietnam.
