It's always a SINCERE delight when Greg Adams pays us a visit. We can recite his background at this point as if it was our OWN :) Trumpeter, composer, arranger. Founding member of the beloved Tower of Power. Grammy and Emmy nominations. Rock, Pop, Soul, Jazz and MORE under his belt for decades - with legendary stars, both living and no longer. 14 albums with TOP, half a dozen solo projects, and three choice works with East Bay Soul. Which leads us to this new interview!
"That's Life" from EBS took off like a proverbial rocket when it launched in 2015. To get the most of this groovy mileage, Greg is bringing his band to the Mid-Atlantic/East Coast in a matter of 72 hours. At Sculler's in Boston on 4/1 - headlining with Pieces of a Dream on 4/3 - and at Bethesda Blues and Jazz on 4/5. HONEY, this part of the country will NEVER be the same!
With Greg at three p.m. Eastern TODAY, his friend and band mate, Herman Matthews! World class drummer, born in Texas - where he played with his Uncle's Blues Trio - at age 11! That prepped this fabulous artist to find his eventual way to Los Angeles. And stints with Kenny Loggins, Richard Marx, and a HOST of others - including Tower of Power. There's that strong connection with Greg :) These two fantastic musicians have had a reputation as being on TOP of their game for a long time. No brainer when you consider that Greg has been involved in over 600 recordings! The wide array of genres between Greg and Herman are dazzling. Well-versed in Jazz, Pop and Soul, especially. And does that ever translate to the big band feel of "That's Life!" We'll hear three tracks from it today - the music on this show will be particularly magical!
See you at TWO p.m. Eastern - our guests join us in the next hour. We can't WAIT!
