As I Dig It/Tony Adamo
Giacomo Gates — Miles Tones: Sings The Music Of Miles Davis. He was @#1 on the jazzweekly jazz charts from April 22,2013 to May 13,2013, yet he only received 2 stars out of 5 from the Downbeat reviewer John Ephland.
This brings up a point I made while being interviewed by Brent Black's @CriticalJazz. "Some of the critics of my music in the past I feel have used generic templates in writing reviews. I came across this way of reviewing while digging music reviews in music publications. I see too many opinion reviews based upon a critics personal music tastes and not complying with the music genre they are reviewing." I dig this is the case in the Giacomo Gates review. It looks like a knock off review. Lets get it done kinda thing. Don’t get me wrong people, there are as many great music critics as are there bad ones. In this case, giving Giacomo Gates and the music Of Miles Davis 2 stars is not in keeping with the star quality of Mr. Gates.
I don't have to get up tight about not getting a music review in DB. I'm a unknown jazz artist and don't have the bread to pay for a ad in DB to be considered for a review and I'm only @#20 on the Top 25 jazzCharts @http://www.allaboutjazz.com/php/jazzdownloads_day.php?day=30
