JT is an acclaimed composer, and wrote the arrangement for “Song F” on Halcyon Days, which was nominated for a Grammy in 2004. He also plays guitar on Levitate!

(As a random aside, JT is one of the warmest characters I’ve ever met, and has been known to stand outside a concert directing traffic in the snow, imploring drivers to please travel safely… you don’t get that at every show!)
