Members of Herbie Hancock and the Headhunters as well as members of Tower of Power, Arsenio Hall, Huey lewis and the News and The Tonight Show Band have recorded on Tony Adamo's past released CDs.

Note from Tony Adamo

I give a mighty thanks to Irwin Chusid. Administrator for Sun Ra LLC, who owns Ra's music rights. For giving me the permission to write and rename one of Sun Ra's songs. . And to my friend Dave Davis trombone player in the Sun Ra Arkestra under the direction of Marshall Allen.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
