STORY ART/ Jazz Walk about/By Tony Adamo

Jazz Walk about/By Tony Adamo
Nu Jazz Vocal Trip Bop Spoken Word
I was a down and totally out jazz musician in the 1970’s who had pawned and lost my jazz horn years before/ Drugs, booze and digging a high where my main gig at the time/ I didn’t need no stinkin horn to get by only the bread from the pawn to get high/ Partying hanging out and the dope life where my walk to the down fall of my so called jazz musician life/ Man that was a very wild and fuzzy time to be alive/ Now dig I’ve been clean and sober for twenty years and even have a college degree/ My past jazz life was long gone or so I thought/ A few days ago I was walkin on E. 116 St. in New York City/ I just happened to pass a pawn shop and in the window along with the scattered items of people’s lives was my jazz horn It had survived/

"Never stop telling about racism in jazz.Who will step forward now?
"On the list of topics most white jazz musicians would rather not be talking about, I think issues of race in jazz fall right behind their parents’ sex lives or when the biopsy results are due back. It’s uncomfortable for all sorts of reasons, which is why most of us choose to avoid getting into it if at all possible. It tends to explode the happy illusion that the jazz scene is a harmonious colorblind family where musical achievement is the only metric that matters. If it is discussed, it’s usually among friends in a non-public setting where good faith can be assumed and people can accept some basic facts as givens:" IAN CAREY
that jazz is a music that came out of the African-American community and is a deep part of that culture’s historical identity;
that great respect is due to the black masters who shaped it;
that those masters were on the receiving end of vicious racial animosity for much of the music’s history;
that white musicians unfairly profited from discrimination against black musicians by audiences and the music industry;* but
that white musicians also played a role in the development of the music; and
that America isn’t yet over these wounds, and people, especially musicians, ignore this to their own detriment.

The Chickin Is Wack/Tony Adamo


A HIGH 5 To Radio Wild Fire/Tony Adamo

BTW, I really did like the track( SONIC HENDERSON) and look forward to hearing more of your work. We also got some nice feedback: here's one from a guy in Canada "I'm listening to the live broadcast right now - great inspiring stuff on air! - really dig Matt Black's poems and the jazz track by Tony Adamo."
We'll be in touch.
