JazzWorldQuest Showcase 2022: Tony Adamo(USA)-Better Than Picasso At MidNite

Tony Adamo-Better Than Picasso At MidNite

ony Adamo(USA)-Better Than Picasso At MidNite

Well, the blue jeaned, floppy hat wearing singing street preacher Tony Adamo is back with a new upcoming album. Here’s the first single from it, “Better Than Picasso At Midnight”, which is essentially polishing, refurbishing, new engine adding remake of the classic “Better Than Anything” and machine shopped, chopped and hopped by Tony Adamo. The original lyrics are weaved into new stream of consciousness ones which include references and rhymes ranging from George Benson to Superfly. The music itself is a mix of CTI soul with a dash of disco, tasty Breezin’ guitar licks with a mix of wacka wooka by Chris Pimentel, Turrentine toned tenor treats from saxist Rob Sudduth and Crusading keys and beats from programmer Barry Schiffman. No one delivers street corner synchronized sermons like Tony A. Start passing the plate! by George W. Harris/Jazz Weekly

Hakim Jamal-Neon Sign


The new album from Hakim Jamal is inspired by the work of the great and sadly underrated Japanese Jazz-Funk musicians of the 1970s and 80s. It’s Hakim’s most uptempo album today, comprised of mostly instrumental dance/disco music with some stunning individual solos.
