Tony Adamois just so good to the bones that nothing he does can be ignored. Here, he teams up with Tower of Power keyboardist Roger Smith and with a team that is so loose that you have to get regular treatments from a chiropractor to dance to it. Adamo delivers his street wise lyrics about life and love, while the bass is slapped around like Cagney’s girlfriends and the drums snap like Pavarotti’s tights. This hip mix of blues and soul puts the fun back in funky. —George W. Harris, JAZZWEEKLY 

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 Rain Man 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 optimistic feeling. One has little doubt that he will find another love soon.—Scott Yanow, jazz journalist/historian and author of 11 books including The Jazz Singers and Jazz On Film
