"In 2016, where an always-connected generation screams for attention through new, often contrived definitions of “cool” and surprisingly predictable proclamations of uniqueness, singer and spoken word artist Tony Adamo arrives seemingly from nowhere as a true anachronism: a performer who is authentically “cool” in a timeless, almost reckless way that almost no popular artist today can match." SOULTRACKS
Tony Roc Adamo is a modern day hipster, talking his lyrics as much as singing them and acting out the words of the stories he creates. He loves to groove and swing in his own way above the instrumentalists. On this version of his “Rain Man,” Adamo is accompanied and inspired by the keyboards and production of Roger Smith (of Tower and Power) and the drumming of Kyron “K-Frost” Kirby.
“Rain Man” deals with the end of a love affair and has a plea for the rainman to make it rain love his way. Over the infectious and funky rhythms, Tony Roc Adamo puts plenty of emotion into the story but there is also a joyful and optimstic feeling. One has little doubt that he will find another love soon.

"In his latest video and mp3 "Nine Miles of Blu," Tony Adamo runs the voodoo down with legendary drummer Mike Clark (yes the drummer who played with Herbie Hancock back in 1974 on Thrust), and references to being in the middle of a happening jazz scene, tipping his verse to Miles' and Coltrane's "Giant Steps". Mike Clark sparking the track with great rhythmic ideas." Allaboutjazz
The Donald J. Trump Collection includes ties, suits, dress shirts, eyeglasses and other accessories. Trump shirts were made in China, Bangladesh, Honduras and Vietnam.
The Clinton campaign has pounced on many of these glaring hypocrisies in many ads in several key swing states.
2. Trump home Items
That's right, you can adorn your home with the Trump label and risk your house either being foreclosed or falling into a sink hole. Trump Home offers a variety of items including chandeliers, mirrors, bedding, table lamps, cabinets, sofas, barstools, cocktail tables and more. Reports show that pretty much all of these items are made in a host of foreign countries, including China and Turkey.
The Clinton campaign has jumped on this as well, pointing to a trademark registration for the Trump Home brand that clearly shows picture frames and other home products that were made in India.
3. Trump hotel items
Trump's chain of luxurious hotels and opulent condos are the crowning achievements of his sprawling empire. When he's not going ballistic on Twitter at 3am like a jealous ex, or railing about how the Republican establishment has hung him out to dry, he's constantly boasting about all of his fabulous hotels.
Report Advertisement The only problem is that virtually all of his hotel items are made in China and Taiwan.
4. Trump beverages
Nothing quenches one's thirst quite like having to drink something with the Trump label emblazoned across it. I'm referring of course to Trump Natural Spring Water, which is served at Trump hotels, restaurants and golf clubs. Believe it or not, Trump water comes from New York or Vermont, and is bottled in New York.
However, the same can't be said about the hilariously failed Trump Vodka.
Trump Vodka was manufactured at a distillery in the Netherlands, but the distribution company stopped carrying it in 2010. An Israeli company continued to carry Trump Vodka, although the version sold in Israel is different from the original Trump Vodka. The Trump Vodka produced and sold in Israel is made from ingredients that make it kosher for Passover, which made it a popular beverage around the holidays. However, the Jerusalem Post reported that none of the ingredients were actually kosher.
The Beat Generation (1950) page on FB has censured my art because the word BEATNIK was in the headline for the backdrop of my art. This is a affront to me and the free thinking artists who are poets, writers, and musicians of this world. I am not hip to the fact that the moderator of The Beat Generation has censured my art. The beat generation has posted many of my graphic art works in the past. But now because of the word BEATNIK I am censured and kicked off the Beat Generation and not allowed to post in the future. This shows me that the Beat Generation moderator does not have a full grasp and is not hip to the history of the Beat Generation. The follow quote provides illumination into clarification of the Beatnik to Beat Generation.
"The Beatnik counter culture was a revolutionary time for music and literature. There is a common stereotype that Beatniks where nothing more than a higher echelon of hippies with few aspirations outside of sex and drugs. Despite some truth in those stereotypes, the Beat Generation actively shaped North American culture." Orange County Reverb, January 7, 2013
"Kirpal Gordon Tony Roc Adamo: lord/son, lad: the pic is so compelling w/ the figures in red (& the flag) against that silly headline in dark black w. NYPD face peeking through. yr pic is not just about art & artists---it IS art! i am not sure why anyone wld object to the word beatnik as that was the shorthand back then. i never thought of AG, his dad OR taylor mead as beatniks; they are all too old & too real. maynard g. krebs, a TV-invented phenomenon, was a beatnik just like the word beatnik which has nuttin to do w/ JK's beatific experience. stay strong & kleep making work like this---& in the recording studio! happy INDEPENDENCE day!"
If you have been censured by TBG in the past please post your experience on my FB page. A most hip thank you.
The Beat Generation on FB has censored my art.Yo Dave, this art is not about the Beatniks. It's about Allen Ginsberg and his father and Taylor Mead. You just don't get. It's beat art. You R imposing censorship on my beat art
Tony Adamo's What is Hip? The recording of the song “What is Hip” on Adamo's CD came from a suggestion made by the legendary horn player and Tower of Power co-founder, STEPHEN 'DOC' KUPKA. During a recording session with Adamo , Doc suggested several TOP songs that Tony might want to cover.
