Tony Adamo has signed a record deal with Random Act Records (RAR). Some of the outstanding artists Adamo will be joining are: Mike Clark, of Herbie Hancock and the Headhunters, Michael Wolff, former band leader for the Arsenio Hall show, Larry Coryell named by Musician Magazine as "one of the 100 greatest guitarists alive today, " Kenny Drew, Jr., as Jazziz Magazine says has a "brilliant distinctive style, " Carmen Intorre, Jr., Downbeat Magazine rates his new Cd at 31/2stars.
A recent review of one of Adamo's new songs from his upcoming release, MILES OF BLU on RAR states: "Adamo reaches into the pre-rap turf of Gil Scott-Heron here with this seductive too-short flash memoir about how he discovered jazz and its legendary envelope pushers – Dizzy Gillespie, Charles Mingus, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, and Miles Davis. There's energy and honor and wonder in Adamo's words, especially in the fluid alliterative syncopated way the words reflect the inspiration that jazz gave him as an artist, as a human being."

"Tony Adamo's upbeat take on the Beatles' classic that's a cross between a spoken word recitation and a Tom Jones hipshaker"
This very fresh take on the Beatles' symphonically infused downer reemerges here in Adamo's arrangement as decidedly less depressive but certainly no less enticing. The melancholy of the original comes through less so in Adamo's phrasings but is threaded throughout by the plaintiveness of the organ. The sadness of McCartney's voice has been leeched out here but miraculously not so much prettified by Adamo as hepped up by his jazz inflections and flavorings. The tempo's faster and the crispness of the drums and the guitar provide a snappy counterpoint to the organ. This is not a lonely song at all but a sort of rousing pronouncement about all the lonely people
