Tony Adamo and Steve Gadd Groovin' High
Tony Adamo and Steve Gadd Groovin’ High
San Francisco, CA
Dr. Groove, Steve Gadd was groovin’ high on two of singer/songwriter, Tony Adamo’s new tunes, “Cold Duck” and “Ecstasy.” Jerry Stucker, Adamo’s long time producer got these hot tracks from Gadd. The Groove Dr. set the pace with a smooth, funky pulse around Adamo’s voice building a wall of chilled out grooves that permeated the recording studio. This new and extraordinary drum sound fused Adamo’s funky sensibility and rhythmic singing style with Gadd’s in the pocket drum precision. You just might find a couple of hits here. These two new songs will be on Adamo’s new CD release in ‘09.
Steve is one of the most in-demand and influential drummers in the world. This master drummer has played or recorded with the likes of Chick Corea, Paul McCartney, Al Jarreau, James Brown, Lee Ritenour and Stevie Wonder just to name a few.
Music critics have said the following about Adamo:
“Impressive is an understatement. Adamo’s stylish and signature vibrato tinged voice adds a truly bright dimension to all he endeavors to be set to song.” Ronald Jackson of Jazzreview.com
“Tony Adamo’s voice is like Lou Rawls fronting Tower of Power.” Stuart Hamilton of Amazon.co.uk.
“Tony Adamo’s STRAIGHT UP DEAL CD reveals the vocal talents of a superior singer.” Edward Blanco of Ejazznews.com.

Each Day Is A Gift.
Steve Gadd is definitely a drummer's drummer, but I'm afraid that Tony Adamo is just a little too smoooove & predictable for my taste.
