TONY ADAMO Did Mark Murphy Believe in UFOS?

EP · 2020 · RnB

The interrogative title of this fine track shares an interesting insight, as well as its supposition. Whether the late singer literally did buy into UFOs—a la Sun Ra who saw "space as the place"—or he didn't is irrelevant. What is key is the fact that Mark Murphy has had a definitive and lasting impact on jazz vocalists today—and very much so on the High Prince of sing-speak, Tony Adamo who salutes Murphy on this infectious single. Further, the savvy integration of Michael Franks' "Don't Be Blue" into the performance adds encouragement and a positive sheen on the proceedings. It's a brilliant production choice.

Adamo, the ultimate hipster's hipster, is dead on his game on this hip-hop grooved masterpiece. Brilliantly performed and laid down over a killer rhythm, Adamo speaks "jazz gospel" and offers verbal high praise to Murphy by way of his own poetics about Murphy's verbiage on Oliver Nelson's "Stolen Moments." (Murphy wrote a well-known version of lyrics for the classic tune.)

    Hi Tony. If a promoter hears about you from a colleague or reads a review, what other options are there to check out your music, other than Youtube, website, Facebook & Spotify that you think should be on this list.Matt Fripp/Jazzfuel Response To JazzFuel On FACEBOOKTony Roc Adamo Ayo Jazzfuel, I'm on all of the above. My Producer is Mike Clark from Herbie Hancock and the Headhunters. I record with members of Tower of Power. I'm recording with Roger Smith of TOP this Jan 9th/18. It's not about adding how many sites you can list your music on. The fact is that is completely BS about a promoter booking you through a review or digging your music from a colleague of his or hers. I've had major airplay and still get radio spins to this day. Most respected Jazz promo man Jim Eigo does my jazz and music promo. As of 12/7/7 I have over 66,000 downloads of my song Rain Man "Make It Rain Love My Way" on Allaboutjazz.Still not one jazz booking agent or club booking person has been interested in having me play at their festivals or venues. It seems they are not interested in taking a chance on an unknown artist. A most hip thank you.Tony Roc AdamoTony Adamo And The New York..Tony Adamo Vocal Hip Spoken Word/Mike Clark Drums/ Lenny White DrumsTim Ouimette Trumpet/Donald Harrison/Richie Goods/ Bass/Michael Wolff
