"Tony Adamo's entire support crew is superb and clearly dyed deep blue
in the jazz-funk tradition. Laying down a solid, driving underbelly,
drummer Mike Clark (of Herbie Hancock's
"Headhunters" fame) shines. Trumpeter Tim Ouimette screams, leads and
blows great jazz ("Miles of Blu"). The addition of Delbert Bump's B3
brings the R+B thing full circle ("Don't Change Horses") and Tower of
Power's Stephen "Doc" Kupka makes a studio call, bringing his hat, black
bag, and balls-to-the-wall baritone along.
the Greek philosophers might have suggested we take all things in

performed verbal presentations are served on this "Blu"-plate special.
It's a jazz-funk ear-feast. So, please pass the Ouzo, Plato." Nicholas
