Tony Adamo - Was Out Jazz Zone Mad
This cat takes some old school spoken word and makes it fresh - with a clear eye on the Jazz greats and no apologies. Tony Adamo has led a storied life, from the Navy to radio to acting to putting up billboards. When he met up with Mic Gillette and Skip Mesquite from Tower Of Power, he began recording and found a new groove: Free flowing spoken word. Tony writes his words down, and then does his piece on stage or in the studio, and the words are not the same. He has teamed up with Mike Clark for his new record, WAS OUT JAZZ ZONE MAD, released this past September with a feature from Roger Smith. This is the poet as band member - sometimes singing, sometimes beat poet, sometimes a radio presenter, all in synch with the madness of the music. It's like a sport, where the ball can go anywhere and the players move in earnest. When it's right, it's nothing but graceful. WAS OUT JAZZ ZONE MAD pays tribute to the greats, to the players behind him, and to the art of improvisation.
Nicole Willis & Banda Palomita -I Call Your Name
When you've recorded a duet with Curtis Mayfield, been included in President Obama's re-election playlist on spotify, have music released on Universal, Warner, Sony BMG, Warp Records, Ubiquity, Light In The Attic and many more, there's not much left to prove. Yet following a career spanning over three decades, singer, songwriter and producer Nicole Willis continues to challenge herself. From the concept to the band line-up, from writing the music and lyrics to recording, editing and mixing, Miss Nicole was involved in all aspects at play in the making of her upcoming new album My Soul Sensation, a luscious collection of disco-tinged soul, jazz-funk, boogie & electro with new backing band Banda Palomita. The album is anticipated by first single "I Call Your Name", an infectious slice of electro-funk in which Nicole languidly addresses a lost love whose memory still haunts her.
