Singer/songwriter Tony Adamo and his long time producer Jerry Stucker were recently at Capital Records to have three tracks mixed by legendary music producer Al Schmitt (assisted by Capitol Records recording engineer, Steve Genewick). Al Schmitt has worked with the most influential voices in American Pop and Jazz for the last forty years starting with Sinatra and most recently, Diana Krall.
Adamo’s new CD will be a collection of jazz standards as well as some pop gems turned into jazz. Jerry Stucker, Adamo’s producer has written very hip, smooth new music arrangements for these. Included are War’s, “In the Ghetto,” “In the Winelight” with music written by Grover Washington, Jr. and lyrics by Kurt Elling and Cannonball Adderly’s instant jazz classic, “Mercy Mercy.”
Adamo will be back at Capitol late summer to finish the final mixes for this new yet untitled CD. For more information on this new emerging artist, please go to www.jazznow.com.Posted by Peter Böhi at May 24, 2004 5:07 AM
