Tony Adamo reviewed by Soul Tracks
(Published: March 08, 2008)

Tony Adamo stays on track with Soul Tracks-www.myspace.com/to...

Sitting in the jazz café along with a few friends, sipping Chamomile tea, singer/visual artist Tony Adamo enters the stage offering us a sweet deal. He is offering his latest
14-track fusion CD, Straight Up Deal. What is his recipe? Add a taste of Michael Beck, sample some Santana, throw in the sentiment of Miles Davis, the style of Grover Washington, Jr. and the Lou Rawls-like vibrato of Tony Adamo. There you have it: an eclectic, high energy project of jazz, R&B, soul and funk.

He allowed us a taste of his dish with an introduction of a few of his powerful featured guest artists, such as Doc Kupka (Tower Of Power) and Ernie Watts on sax, Eddie Henderson on trumpet and Paul Jackson on bass guitar. The appetizer, "No Strings," displayed his funky, jazz side. The main course was assorted with several classic remakes: "Winelight" (instrumental piece made famous by Grover Washington); Miles Davis' "Milestones" and Joe Zawinul's "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy." With such a passionate band and Tony's funky, R&B voice we were begging for more. He quenched our thirst with "Midnite Café."

As he closed, he offered us another deal - dessert- with complimentary copies of his latest project. As a singer, but also, a visual artist, he took personal interest in the creativity of his CD packaging. It was stylishly designed, with a nice headshot on the cover and the Northern California Bay Area city nightlife as the backdrop on the back. Tony Adamo, and his band reflects that real musicians are here to stay, still offering talent and stellar performances.

This CD is a Straight Up Deal. Recommended by soultracks.com
