Mike Clark Says This
“Tony Adamo is one of the more interesting artists that I have worked with in years. His deep blues, Oakland style funk and jazz roots are locked in at a deep emotional level. In the tradition of Kerouac, Mark Murphy and Gil Scot, Tony is today's spoken word artist. He addresses the issues he feels strong about unapologetically with his own twist on the past, present and the future. Tony's funky street smart sensibilities and great sense of humor takes us on an adventure that we cant wait to go on. I played and produced this CD and it was a joy to be a part of it."
“Renowned Drummer MIKE CLARK is a percussion innovator: His work with Herbie Hancock and The Headhunters revolutionized funk drumming. As a Jazz warrior, Mike has appeared with players such as Vince Guaraldi, Chet Baker, Joe Henderson, Donald Harrison, Randy Brecker and more. His peerless beats are among the most-sampled in the hip/hop world.” – Random Act Records
"As vocalist, Adamo's exciting, highly-energetic interpretations avoid any faux hip inflections. He swings soulfully heavy ("Ticking Clock"), has great rhythmic feel, and injects a soul vaccination across the date. His scripted dialog is powerful in presentation and content ("Sun-Ra Rockets to Mars"). There's no hand or lip jive; the "hipspokenwords" are performed as dit-dot tight as the horns and infectious rhythms behind him ("Ain't That a Groove"). He channels the "Beat" poets Jack Kerouac and Alan Ginsberg, and modern verbalists, Mark Murphy and Gil Scott-Heron."Nicholas F. Mondello on Miles of Blu for Allaboutjazz
