Tony Adamo and the legendary Headhunters

Members of the legendary Headhunters who backed Herbie Hancock on several recordings have cooked up a new soul groove for Tony Adamo’s remake of the Tower of Power hit, “What is Hip.” Original members Mike Clark (drums), Bill Summers, (percussion) and new Headhunter, Richie Goods (bass) form an insatiable groove that is interwoven throughout this funk/jazz hip/spoken word mash up of a song. Jerry Stucker, who produced and plays guitar on Adamo’s cover of “What is Hip,” is credited with… Continue

In a world where Hip Hop and sampling are taking over, how does a real musician survive?

 

As I listen to the lyrics of artist calling people out of their names and magnifying themselves, I often wonder, where is the real music? The musicianship has gone away from the radio. In fact, the number of Hip Hop stations outnumbers the Jazz Stations. People are being forced to listen to rubbish. With Auto-Tune and all of this wonderful software and plug-ins, anyone can make a CD and people will…

Words With Hulon

Things always seem to get better when you lift others as high as you lift yourself.


To relieve tension, try a little tenderness.


Great things happen when you think great thoughts. Open your mind to new possibilities.
Florida is beginning to get hot this time of year, but I know that it will get even hotter as the months go by. Enjoy the cool weather while you have it and take a dip in the pool to take the edge off. Swimming is great exercise.

Frank Wess Flute Transcription

I have added a transcription of Frank Wess' flute solo on "There Is No Greater Love" to my website:

http://scooby-sax.com/transcriptions.aspx

It's a great example of Frank's melodic sense, his laid-back time feel, and his blues feeling.

Enjoy!

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
