"Tony Adamo's video "What Is Hip" brings both ole school and new music together as it provides us with an Interesting view of the group Tower of Power performing their original hit "What Is Hip," and showcasing an incredibly impressive rhythm section in the process. Adamo does a great job speaking about the group and explaining the history of 70's music and the Oakland, California groove, and it's obvious that he has much respect for both. The video then segways to scenes of Adamo performing his version of "What Is Hip". It's always great to see today's musicians giving respect to those who came before them, and Adamo is deep in the groove with a new conception of voice n' funk with an infectious slice of soul. This track is a fantastic mid-tempo blending of jazz and funk, keeping you in its grasp from beginning to end. There are no computer tricks here – only real music from real musicians that will make you move to the bass, guitar, piano, trumpet, drums, sax and background vocals. Many props go out to both Tower Of Power and Tony Adamo on this one"
