When Your Mind Wanders.. Fallow It/Art Tony Adamo/

Tony Adamo's Full Music Review/ JAZZIZ MAGAZINE

Mike Clark/Art Tony Adamo

While often referred to as the “Tony Williams of funk,” Mike Clark considers jazz his first love. He gained worldwide recognition as one of America’s foremost jazz and funk drummers while playing with Herbie Hancock in the early seventies. His incisive playing on Hancock’s “Actual Proof”garnered him an international cult following and influenced generations of drummers. Mike has produced three releases for the spoken word prophet Tony Adamo, including ”Miles of Blu”and "Tony Adamo & The New York Crew" with Tower of Power's Doc Kupka, Donald Harrision, Michael Wolff. Along with drum legend Lenny White (Return to Forever), Mike is co-leading Nu Brew, a double drummer experience in new music.He also appears on Tower of Power’s organist Chester Thompson’s new CD, Mixology/The IRIDIUM JAZZ CLUB NYC

Tony Adamo Eddie Henderson

"Eddie Henderson was the one destined to play on “Milestones,” written in 1958 by Eddie’s friend and mentor, Miles Davis. Eddie’s performance was an impeccable tour de force from a man who’s as comfortable with his horn and he is with himself. Eddie’s horn style is often imitated but never duplicated. Producer, Jerry Stucker asked Eddie to play one chorus only on Tony Adamo's take. But amazingly he proceeded to give a clinic on jazz trumpet virtuosity presenting five different takes." allaboutjazz

Tony Adamo/ What is Hip
"This is a very interesting take on a hit song. For lovers of jazz,baby boomers, they will be right at home with song. This song evokes memories of Gil-Scott Heron, the Last Poets and others poets of late 60's/70's who used music to give life to their poetry which was the real foundation for hip hop."
