Hi and blessings!
Although I've not physically met Steven Charles, or Karen Greene, or you yet, it is true we are much more alike, than we are different.
Steven and Karen both agree that the best way to promote this jazzy culture is to "Be the change you want to see". (Gandhi).
No good comes of criticizing, condeming, or otherwise complaining about other's tastes in music, or lack of enthusiasm, support, or venue.
It works by working it. "Be the Change" is a great mantra or… Continue

A Review By: Sandy Shore, smoothjazz.com
TONY ADAMO Straight Up Deal Urbanzone Records - GETS FIVE STARS
For those who haven't experienced it...there's a mystique to the San Francisco bay area at night. It's unique to the 'City by the Bay.' Over the years many artists have captured this vibrant, earthy electricity and stuck it in the middle of their music regardless of genre.
Santana, Jefferson Airplane/Starship, Tower of… Continue

A Review By: Edward Blanco, Ejazznews
Bay area vocalist Tony Adamo garnished a five star rating from Smoothjazz.com for his latest release, "Straight Up Deal." However, there's a lot more to the smooth jazz sound found on this recording than what they would have you believe. Tony Adamo, equipped with a deep baritone voice, belts out some real gyrating funk, R&B;and soulful jazz tunes on this fourteen piece CD, which also includes a… Continue

Review by Ronald Jackson-Jazzreview.com
Jazz vocalist Tony Adamo struts back with his silky, charismatic, and, as I’m sure many ladies will confirm, seductive vocals on this clever new release Straight Up Deal . While I’ve classified this recording as smooth jazz, it really serves up equal doses of funk, smooth jazz, and R&B. There are also elements of island rhythms and cool, piano-bar jazz. A true cornucopia of coolness in… Continue

I speak to a very special Community here; at the behest of Jaijai. It is all about the fusion of our cultures; wherever we come from. You will hear an almagation of songs in my post: yet it all stems from Jazz, while I'm still (obviously playing the true artform). I'm going toward; and that with alacrity.
Whatever music is heard by hyperlinks, I perform the drums in concert (and agreement).
I never thought that I would have a career, though it is commonly (perhaps… Continue
