Tony Adamo

Born:

Reviewed by Kirpal Gordon (reprinted from Jazz Times), The killin’ist thing about Tony Adamo & the New York Crew is that everybody in the band, especially the dope rhyme sayer, has got big ears all the way back to New Orleans and ancient-forward into the ever-evolving Multi-New Thing. It’s big ears working together that’s keeping this CD in Jazzweek's Chart Top 200 List since its release, a totally unheard of phenomenon for jazz-spoken word collaborations. Although singing the talents and wonders of the giants who make this music immortal is nothing new, Adamo and the New York Crew pour out on these eleven tracks joyous lagniappes of praise, the song-cup running over with each additional solo. It’s one thing to express an artful appreciation of the Jazz Messengers, for example, in a song, but it’s a whole other monster of tribute when the band rocks Blakey’s sound so righteously.

Tony Adamo: Sun Ra Throws a Brick Through a Jazz Window

Read "Sun Ra Throws a Brick Through a Jazz Window" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello


When one listens to the work of Tony Adamo, there needs to be a self-understanding that Adamo's approach to jazz completely abolishes any pre-conceptions of what “singing," “vocalese," and “storytelling" are. His efforts are a highly-stylized ultra-hip gumbo of these things, usually overlaid over a swinging, driving rhythmic platform. His is music intense and this track ...
