About Tony Adamo


A preview of coming attractions!

Brent Black /

Tidings of great joy shall be to all people in January of 2015 with the release of the new Tony Adamo recording! This is the perfect storm of a Nu music revolution and Tony Adamo is your vocal master of ceremonies, the lyrical poet laureate to take you to the land of rhythm and groove.

Checking out a couple of advance tracks that found their way to my inbox there is "Gale Blowin' High" a lyrical biography of the great Eddie Gale. Take an opening subtle samba groove and free your mind as the syncopated swing moves to an Afro-Gospel sound that no one can touch. This is the kick off for a Nu music revolution for all people! The band speaks for itself with names including the legendary drummer from the Headhunters Mike Clark along with Lenny White and Michael Wolff but make no mistake, all the musical co-conspirators are bringing it!

The second track "Listen Here Listen Up" is a blues infused jazz nasty to blow your mind and feed your soul! This tune is as cool as the other side of pillow! This is pure acid funk, Adamo welcomes you to a new sound, his sound with a band that takes in the pocket to the next dimension of groove. Straight up, there is not another vocal artist covering this territory and I am at a loss to think of another that could with this kind of authenticity. Tony Adamo is the real deal!

As a critical mercenary it is my job to hip you to the best of what is available or in this case what is coming! Christmas doesn't end on December 25th fellow babies, Tony Adamo is bringing you a little something the first of the year!
