New Smooth Jazz vocal artist and songwriter, Tony Adamo, captivates you with his energetic groove and upbeat tempo on his new CD, Dance of Love. You'll get hooked on Adamo's hip to the groove lyrics and haunting melodies. Jerry Stucker's music production is second to none. The first cut, "Ecstacy", has been on U.S. and European Smooth Jazz internet charts for over six months and has gone to #1 fifteen different times.

Adamo has a distinctive new singing style of fusing Smooth Jazz and R&B, spiced with a subtle pinch of Latin rhythm. This new style attracted the following musical wizards: Ernie Watts on Sax, Rodney Franklin on on Piano and Tower of Power Horns, past and present, to include the funky doctor, 'Doc' Kupla, Mic Gilette and Skip Mesquite.

"Adamo is a stylish and creative vocalist who offers surprises on every cut in this well executed CD". - Dorothy L. Hill, JazzNews Interactive.

"Adamo has a sexy, powerful voice that has been compared to Tom Jones". - Wendy K. Ross, Jazzreview.com

"Adamo is a classic jazz crooner; hey, he's got a great voice". Steve Stolder, BAM Magazine.

Jazz singer/lyricist Lorraine Feather led the group 'Full Swing', whose End of the Sky release was a favorite on NAC radio. 'Full Swing' performed at the Monterey, Playboy and Kool Jazz festivals and at Carnegie Hall.

Lorraine's solo release, The Body Remembers, was hailed as "Witty, refreshing---an uncommon maiden voyage." by Jazz Times and "Manifestly brilliant" by London's Cresendo Magazine.

Lorraine has contributed lyrics for songs recorded by Phyllis Hyman, Kenny Rankin, Patti Austin and Diane Schuur. She has also written for television and film since 1992 and has earned seven Emmy nominations.

New York City Dragx is a colection of classic Fats Waller compositions with Lorraine's new lyrics and vocals. The album features lengendary stride pianist Dick Hyman (also the composer for numerous Woody Allen movies), who has accompanied Lorraine in L.A. and New York playing the Waller material, to rave reviews. Pianist Mike Lang led the L.A. sessions. Waller himself is showcased on track #12, which is his original performance of "Smashing Thirds" -- retitled "Cezanne" -- surrounded by live musicians.

Lorraine is the daughter of jazz writer Leonard Feather, and the goddaughter of Billie Holiday.

"Hip and original ... a phenomenon in this city of the overproduced and the undercreative." - Tony Gieske, xThe Hollywood Reporter

"What a joy, what a delight -- what a totally unexpected treat! She's puled off a very neat trick." - Chip Deffaa, xThe New York Post

"A tour de force. She's simply one of a kind." - Johnny Mandel, xcomposer of "The Shadow of Your Smile"

"Sophisticated and swinging -- Fats would have loved it." - Chuck Niles, xKLON

"I've listened umpteen times. It's absolutely wonderful in every way, no kidding." - Walter Becker,x Steely Dan

"Stunning...extraordinary, both as compositions and as performances...she
sings her way through the tricky passages with a vivacious sense of swing."
- Don Heckman, the Los Angeles Times
