Singer Tony Adamo's "What is Hip" moves up to #5 on alllaboutjazz Top MP3 Downloads in the last 30 Days

"'What Is Hip' is Tony Adamo's exuberant jazzy take on Tower of Power's funk classic. Adamo and his producer/guitarist Jerry Stucker take Tower of Power's classic funk number and give it a more sinewy vibe, elasticizing the vocals and the bass, while crackling up the song's more timpanic elements. This exuberantly selfassured remake recalls the Acid Jazz insouciance of the early 90s while harkening back to the Big Band era and the Vegasy stylings of suave masters of selfconfidence such as Tom Jones and Al Jarreau. Adamo has a brash selfassuredness and a sense of showmanship that's neither unearned nor in your face." Devon Jackson, Magazine Editor Freelance Music Journalist- The Village Voice to Rolling Stone and Details.
