Tony Adamo Sonic Henderson


"This is not any jazz poetry - it is a poem tribute to JAZZ music" MusicDishTV Review

"This is not any jazz poetry - it is a poem tribute to JAZZ music. Spoken word artist Tony Adamo has recently released his "Birth Of The Cool" video, with Adamo himself showcasing his art-of-words with his spot on rhythmic with a spin of his personal style. Behind him, it plays the photo montage of the everlasting jazz legends: Jimmy Smith, Brother Jack McDuff... in addition to clips of the good-old 50's and 60's movies and photos, which brings one back to the sophisticated golden age of jazz music. As Adamo puts it, imagine everything you like about jazz, and "merge them into a big fat giant chord" - that's what you would take away from his "Birth Of The Cool" music video.
Born in San Francisco and with strong family ties to the Bronx and Brooklyn, New York, spoken word veteran Tony Adamo formed a music alliance with the legendary drummer, Mike Clark (Herbie Hancock and the Headhunters) and the respected trumpet player Tim Ouimette. This trio has come up with a fresh new sound in vocal/hip-spoken word laced with a funk musical attitude. With the exception of only a handful of traditional rap artists, most creative vocalists are lacking the substance and stamina to put an entire recording on their backs in an effort to either spread their message, music or both. Tony Adamo makes it look effortless and with a virtual all star line up he gains the freedom to let his imagination soar."

Roberta Flack. It took three years to launch Flack's Atlantic career when a little known track 'First Time Ever I Saw Your Face' from her first LP featured in the movie 'Play Misty For Me'. Meaning a rush to discover a performer that was already three records into her career and an artist that was neither Folk, Gospel, Jazz or RnB but everything, and all at once. Turning her first five records Gold. Flack's art continues to kill us softly.
