First Listen: Tony Adamo takes us on a joyful ride with "Soul Glide"

Share this article

    (February 22, 2024) Time is almost irrelevant when listening to the music of jazz, soul and funk Renaissance Man, Tony Adamo. An artist whose oozes a cool through his Vocal/HipSpokenWord that singers half his age use artifice and sleight of hand to try to attain, Adamo issues the kind of music that could have been plugged into a 60s component set or a 20s set of airpods with equal gravity.

    Adamo teams with longtime collaborator, drummer Mike Clark, along with Richie Goods, Rob Suddeth, Chris Pimentel and John McKay for the new, “Soul Glide,” an organ-and-sax driven number that gives the feel of a sweaty nightclub in Detroit or Chicago, as Adamo lays his husky vocals over the top:

    Let’s do the slide, yeah yeah
    and shake your booty now now
    Let me ride it out into the Soul Glide bliss
    Hey, You and I just can’t miss
