Hip Spoken' Word Artist Tony Adamo gets 5 Stars/ Improvijazzation

Tony Adamo and the New York Crew- YOU GOTTA’ B FLY:  It’s just not that often that I get this “hepped up”… Tony’s spoken/hip word is too much to pass by without reviewing it right away… so, this went right to the top of the review stack!  As you listen to his superlative vocal skills on the fantastic opener, “Gale Blowin’ High“, you’ll become “instantly hip” – even if you never heard jazz like this before.  The players behind each of the eleven tunes join right in, & it’s not like most albums of this nature, where the players are “behind” the vocal hipster…. they OWN these pieces, just as strongly as Tony does!  “Mama’s Meat Pies” is right on DOW-un, bringing back memories of some of the steamiest sessions THIS kat has ever had… ha! ha!  It was the 5:31 “Listen Here Listen Up” that took me all the way down mem’ry lane, though… remembering players like Eddie Harris (one of my own jazz heroes from way back in’ th’ day)… Tony & th’ players definitely know how to convey that PHONK & keep it from ever draggin’ ya’ down (no matter how blues it gets); my personal favorite, to be sure!  Tony’s GOT that soul & ain’t afraid to pass it on to ya’…. I give him a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with a (perfect) “EQ” (energy quotient) of 5.00… which means it also get the “PICK” of this YEAR for “best hip jazz”!  Get more information about Tony & his super-hip works at his Urbanzone Records site.      Rotcod Zzaj http://rotcodzzaj.com/42-2/improvijazzation-issue-153/issue-153-rev... Added by Tony Adamo
