Singer Tony Adamo Reviewed By Ken Spellman-Soundcheckny Radio

Singer Tony Adamo Reviewed By Ken Spellman-Soundcheckny Radio
Singer/songwriter Tony Adamo and his producer/guitarist Jerry Stucker have re-grooved the Tower of Power (TOP) songs "What Is Hip" and "This Time It's Real," and have added their unmistakable smooth groove to these TOP hit classics. Adamo and Stucker have reimagined "What Is Hip" in a totally fresh and hip style that pays homage to, but never attempts to duplicate, the classic Tower of Power original.

"What Is Hip" is a pleasant and refreshing project that reflects back on a legendary time in music history where REAL INSTRUMENTS were played. No Garage Band, Live, Fruity loops here buddy!

On top of that Tony and Jerry dared to cover one of the most famous songs to garner appeal from jazz enthusiasts, lovers of funk, and R&B. This is the type of music that SHOULD be on the radio as it was when "Tower Of Power" initially released it.

As I listened I was rewound back in time to pleasant summer days of my youth refining my skills as a percussionist. It was a time to be HIP and this was the anthem.

The song opens with funky percussion, light keys and spoken word which immediately grab your attention. The horn sections softly remind you of the "Tower Of Power" horns and the overall flow casts you back into the street scenes of movies like "Superfly, Car Wash, and Lady Sings the Blues". The song progresses at a hip pace, no rush, no pressure, we'll get there when we get there!

When we got to the end of the song I had to play it again until I finally downloaded it to my IPhone, got in my baby Benz and took to the streets of Manhattan, from The Trade Center in complex in lower Manhattan, up the West Side highway to 125th Street and i was Hip".

This one gets lot's of Stars **** out of five and I encourage you to visit their sites and buy both their current projects.

Urban AC radio and the few Jazz stations out there get on this one! You can believe we're playing it on Soundcheck!

Black Cherry Group/ Music Review on Singer Tony Adamo

I'm serious -- this album(Straight Up Deal) is essential to any collection
This is Tony Adamo's tour de force -- find me one album which has a great song like this one. Well, the White Album, of course, which is a convenient parallel -- this is as close as anyone has ever come to an R & B version of the Beatles' masterpiece, and what's more, it's the product of one individual's talent. With so many brilliant performances, the only problem is absorbing it all. sounds like a Steely Dan tribute. but I'm hard pressed to figure out what else I would not like from Tonys album --

Black Cherry Group strives to help artists get quality gigs, regularly booking concerts at, amongst others, The House of Blues, The Knitting Factory, 4th & B, The Stage and The Viper Room.
