Another smoove cool-jazz single from Tony Adamo that’s sophisticatedly upbeat.
Tony Adamo, again channeling a bit of a Gil Scott-Heron vibe, though decidedly less political and less spoken-word and more seductively crooned-word, sounds even more confident and casual here—a casual confidence that matches the sophistication and brio and just-plain fun times his bandmates are having. Essentially just another jazz tune about the end of a love affair, “Rain Man” could’ve been prosaic or depressive. Not at all. Adamo, sounding as much like a suaver version of Lou Rawls as Scott-Heron, gives over most of this song to his impressive musicians, particularly to drummer Kyron “K-Frost” Kirby and the retro-y organ-y keyboards of Tower of Power’s Roger Smith.



It’s a longer-than-normal song, too, one that seemingly loses steam about two-thirds of the way through—until you realize that it’s not overly long at all, nor does it dissipate. Instead, Adamo graciously cedes the song to the music and the musicians—and then comes back in on their more optimistic vibe (after Adamo singspeaks for the Rain Man to once again rain down another love into his life) and sounds almost reinvigorated, as opposed to beaten-down or bitter. The song, upbeat, really, the entire time, manages to attain a kind of hope, even salvation

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!
