Scott Yanow Reviews Tony Adamo's Listen Here Listen Up

Tony Adamo
Listen Here Listen Up/11/29/14

Tony Adamo is a colorful spoken word artist who is also a highly expressive and soulful singer. “Listen Here Listen Up” is a tribute to the late great tenor-saxophonist Eddie Harris. In his career, Harris had a hit version of “Exodus,” composed “Freedom Jazz Dance,” was an innovator on the electric saxophone, and teamed up with pianist-singer Les McCann on a classic set at the 1969 Montreux Jazz Festival. He was also a superior improviser and a humorous entertainer.

Homage is paid to Eddie Harris very effectively on “Listen Here Listen Up.” Michael Wolff begins the performance with some bluesy piano worthy of Dr. John. A groove set by the rhythm section (which includes drummer Mike Clark) becomes Harris' "Listen Here.”  Tony Adamo pays verbal tribute to Harris, summing up his life and his legacy to music including his contributions to soul jazz and the birth of acid funk. Donald Harrison wails a bit on his alto sax, before Adamo returns with a little bit of singing and talking, concluding a fun tribute to the great Eddie Harris.

This is a heartwarming performance that will hopefully lead to more listeners discovering the musical magic of Eddie Harris, and the talents of Tony Adamo.

Tony Adamo And Dave Austin

#1 of San Francisco's finest pianists, arrangers, producers and audio engineers. Dave and I go back to the very start of my music career. He's the hippest of the hip. Man of his word.Dave recorded Mark Murphy and Joyce Cooling on some of my music tracks at his Diamond Audio Productions. I had countless good times and laughs with Dave. Later.

Tony Adamo Nacnud Sound Studio

Dig this. I think new technologies and platforms can still be created by individuals searching for tools that the market hasn't yet discovered in music focus groups. The way for this to happen is for people to rearrange their priorities in the recording studio. Don't calibrate your thinking to what common wisdom says. What you should be working on or thinking about is that musicians need space. Guard against arrogance and insularity. Leave yourself open to serendipity. That is where Rick's talent can help. Rick Duncan at Nacnud Sound, Lodi, did all of the above for legendary drummer Mike Clark and myself while recording tracks for my last CD, MILES OF BLU. Rick's studio is his cockpit. He'll fly you any where you want to go.
