Tony Adamo keeps the soul coming with his new video and song "No Strings Attached" from the album Straight Up Deal. With a tower of power's worth of horns being played by Tower of Power members Skip Mesquite and Mic Gillette (who wrote the horn arrangement), Tony's sound is funkier than ever. The vocal and horn performances on "No Strings Attached" are the strongest yet from Adamo and company. Smooth lyrics make the song even greater as Tony exudes coolness and a special touch that seem to be his signature. Adamo really makes some noise with this track, which is sure to be a crowd pleaser for fans of the Soul and R&B genres
Tony Adamo and producer Jerry Stucker have re-imagined two classic Tower of Power hits in a fresh, hip, and icy cool style that you've just got to hear.
Just released is Tony's hot new remake of the classic Tower of Power tune "WHAT IS HIP?" and it's available TODAY for download as an MP3 file. Strokeland's own Stephen Kupka, the Funky Doctor, plays on the track along with jazz great Eddie Henderson on trumpet.
Already released here on Strokeland is Adamo's cool rendition of "THIS TIME IT'S REAL", another great classic Tower of Power tune. This smooth, funky arrangement by Jerry Stucker, covered by Strokeland Records artist Tony Adamo, was written by Tower of Power co-founders, Stephen 'Doc' Kupka and Emilio Castillo. Mic Gillette, who has arranged and recorded on six Adamo/Stucker songs, wrote a funk show-time arrangement for this new cover and laid down the brass. Tom E. Politizer of TOP was brought in for the lead solo.
