Tony Adamo Gil-Scott Heron Mark Murphy
On his latest effort, and debut recording for
Random Act Records, TONY ADAMO has created a
unique genre: “HipSpokenWord.” Built on the
wisdom of musical wizards like Gil-Scott Heron,
Mark Murphy, Jack Kerouac and hip/hop master
rappers, Tony speaks the Truth through his poetic
musings. With preeminent players like producer
Mike Clark (drums), Richie Goods (bass), Delbert
Bump (organ), Michael Wolff (piano), Bill Summers
(percussion) and Tim Ouimette, Rob Dixon, Derek
Gardner and even Tower of Power's own physician of the funk, Stephen "Doc" Kupka. This release will turn heads and blow minds: Tales of travails and triumphs, told in the hippest of ways! Tony speaks/sings his way through the
urban landscapes of Jazz, Funk and Soul.
From the title track “Miles of Blu,” a nod to the
dark prince of Jazz, to “JB,” an homage to the
Godfather of Soul, to a down-home “BBQ” and
asking “America R We Free,” Tony tells it like it is
in his own mesmerizing manner.
The Grooves are infectious, the moods evocative,
the music sizzling and the words – HIP! “MILES OF
BLU” takes listeners on a swinging journey,
culminating in a funky good time!
