Tony Adamo/The Top 50 Releases of 2012/JazzTimes/February issue 2013 & Radio

The Top 50 Releases of 2012/JazzTimes/February issue 2013



If you combined all Top 50 Jazz releases in terms of hard copy sales. Would it amount to 250,000 units sold, 300,000 sold? And what's wrong with Jazz radio or what's left of it? Billboard Jazz Charts for April 6, 2013 has Madeleine Peyroux "The Blue Room" @#1. Yet on the Jazz Week Charts for April 8, 2013 Peyroux is not even in the Top 50.

Man that's how I dig…

Tony Adamo Says Get Hip To Eddie Gale / Ghetto Music & Black Rhythm Happening

Certain albums are snapshots of their eras. They encapsulate the good with the bad and offer lucid apertures into the way things were. Eddie Gale cut two sessions for Blue Note at the close of the ’60s that are beautifully indicative of time and place. Jazz was a cauldron of fomenting styles – fusion, funk, free, R&B, Rock and African, all of these genres were feeding into the music with replenishing regularity, birthing hybrid forms at a pace that was sometimes dizzying…

Singer Tony Adamo's Funky Hip Eleanor Rigby/BlackPlanet Review

Singer Tony Adamo's Funky Hip Eleanor Rigby



This very fresh take on the Beatles' symphonically infused downer reemerges here in Adamo's arrangement as decidedly less depressive but certainly no less enticing. The melancholy of the original comes through less so in Adamo's phrasings but is threaded throughout by the plaintiveness of the organ. The sadness of McCartney's voice has been leeched out here but miraculously not so much…

A Music Review of Tony Adamo's song JB/ Random Act Records





Another jazzy spoken-hop tour through the musical past—this time dedicated to James Brown.

Tony Adamo, who seems to have become the undisputed heavyweight historian and champion of all things jazzy and funky, here spends only about a third of the song doing his uniquely usual thang: spoken-word-scatting on the significance and greatness of The Hardest Working Man in Show Biz. And just when you think maybe Adamo ought not ot be…

RIP BUNNY, THANK YOU FOR A LIFE OF GREAT MUSIC

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN...

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!

Buster Williams
