Tony Adamo - Dance Of Love
Artist: Tony Adamo
Title: Dance Of Love
Label: Rhombus Records
Genre: Jazz/Vocals, Pop, Smooth, R & B
Tony Adamo is the definition of the consummate smooth vocalist on his latest release Dance of Love. He sounds like a combination of Lou Rawls and David Bowie. Out of the ordinary as that may sound for a jazz vocalist it works very well.
The sound created on this recording happened for Adamo because he utilizes one of the most accomplished saxophone players in the business, Ernie Watts, as well as many other talented individuals.
I found it easy enough to step into Adamo's worlds through his music. "Midnight Café" is one of the more expressive tracks on the album and the ambiance created is believable because of the singers' well-timed vocal inflections and the stellar musicianship available for him to build his voice around. The common denominator here is love and how we all dance to it in a different way. It is equivalent to how we all have our own unique personalities and interpretations of daily life and how relationships with others effect us. Tony does a nice job making his point known through some very nice jazz music. This is crossover jazz that will appeal to both the contemporary and pop audiences alike.
There is not any new ground covered here, it is straightforward with no frills, which is comforting for many people when they listen to music. I like that aspect myself at times. I am sure once you hear this groove it will find its way back to your stereo on more than one occasion. Shall we dance?
