Born in New York (Harlem), NY 1951 and raised in Wilson, NC. Mr. Brownlee was “programmed” while in diapers as his Dad (also a saxophonist) listened to Be-Bop and Big Band Swing. Although he started playing drums at the age of only 12, and then switched to saxophone when his next door neighbor in the Bronx (Bevin Turnbull) had a drum set when he came home for 1965 Summer vacation.Thom soon moved to Dallas from Buffalo NY in 1980 where he began sitting in at Mr. C’s Oyster Bar in the West End with Larry “T-Byrd” Gordon’s Band (later joining as a member) also with other local bands such as Linny Nance & Network, Little Joe Blues, Shelley Carroll and Rodney Bowens.
