Tony Adamo: Was Out Jazz Zone Mad

Read "Was Out Jazz Zone Mad" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

On Was Out Jazz Zone Mad, vocalist Tony Adamo aspires to serve in this same role, as a verbal historian of both official and unofficial African-American jazz and blues culture. This type of ...

On this album, he lays down the jazz laws of life’s observations with the highly funkified team that includes legendary drummer Mike Clark ...

Tony Adamo's Rain Man "Make It Rain Love My Way" Music Review

Tony Adamo's Rain Man "Make It Rain Love My Way" Music Review

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 ...
