Singer/Hipspokenword Artist Tony Adamo goes to the number one spot atop allaboutjazz Jazz Chart. Adamo's song 9 MILES OF BLU produced by legendary drummer Mike Clark. Is riding high on allaboutjazz.com's top MP3 downloads for the last ten days. Adamo reaches into the pre-rap turf of Gil Scott-Heron here with this seductive too-short flash memoir about how he discovered jazz and its legendary envelope-pushers—Dizzy Gillespie, Charles Mingus, Thelonius Monk, John Coltrane, Miles Davis. There’s energy and honor and wonder in Adamo’s words, especially in the fluid alliterative syncopated way the words reflect the inspiration that jazz gave him—as an artist, as a human being. Complementing his nimble vocals are former Herbie Hancock drummer Mike Clark.
