  ADAM GOES PROG

Adam is happy to announce that he will be continuing with the Steven Wilson band. "The first tour went really well, so it looks like this is turning into a regular thing, at least for now. It's such a great band, and a killer show. I'm especially glad we are going to be doing the US west coast, so all of my friends in California can check it out!" There are also plans for a video shoot on this tour for a live concert DVD. In addition, there will be a release of a live CD recorded on the 2011 European tour available soon, on Steven Wilson's merchandise site "Headphonedust".

Hangin' with the Wayne Escoffery Quintet...

Adam has been performing recently with the excellent tenor saxophonist Wayne Escoffery (Mingus Dynasty, Tom Harrell), augmenting Wayne's existing quartet (which includes Orrin Evans on piano) with synths. Adam is taking the star trek approach, playing colors and lead lines (no Wurly on this one). The band is playing Wayne's new material, and he plans to go into the studio very soon with this project. Stay tuned!

THE AVENGERS tour in South America

In November/December of 2010 Adam toured with a new project called The Avengers, a sort of Fusion Revivalist concept sporting an all-star line-up: Lincoln Goines on bass, Kim Plainfield on drums, Adam, and Uruguayan guitar hero Beledo, who co-led the band and collaborated with Adam on the material. The Avengers performed 10 concerts in South America, including gigs in Brazil, Uruguay (Montevideo and Minas) and Argentina (Buenos Aires, Neuquen, etc). The tour was very successful and the band hopes to return near the end of the year. WATCH VIDEO!

SUMMER WORKSHOPS: ITALY and AUSTRIA

Adam is teaching again this year at 2 excellent summer workshops in Europe: Veneto Jazz program (in conjunction with The New School University) in Bassano, Italy and The Outreach Music Workshop in Schwaz, Austria. Both workshops are a lot of fun!

VENETO JAZZ PROGRAM in Bassano, Italy

1

1
 




This year the Veneto Jazz program runs from July 11th to July 22nd. It is located in a beautiful Italian city, Bassano Del Grappa (which is near Venice), and has a lot of perks like access to a lot of the major jazz concerts in the area due to its connection with the main jazz promoters in Italy. The program is more geared towards traditional jazz.















There is a great faculty, including Jeff Hirshfield and Cameron Brown and others. In addition to the classes and ensembles, there are lots of local concerts and jams. Adam performed a solo concert here a few years ago that was well received in the local press. WATCH VIDEO: Solo Concert


OUTREACH MUSIC WORKSHOP in Schwaz, Austria

Adam has been performing and teaching at the Outreach Music Workshop for over 10 years. It is more of an experimental music laboratory, actually, and it has always been a high point of the year. Led by renowned Austrian trumpet star Franz Hackl (who Adam collaborates with often), Outreach is one part contemporary music program, one part experimental festival and 3 parts insanity. Located in the heart of the Alps (you can't beat that!), Outreach is a real happening event that never fails to leave a trail of high quality weirdness.

In The Right Place!

Adam was thrilled to recently do a recording session with one of his heroes, Dr. John / Mac Rebbenack! The project is being put together by Jeff Jones, "The Jedi Master," who mixed both Dr John's most recent Grammy Award winning album "The City That Care Forgot" and Adam's "Spork". It was great to play with Mac, and Jedi just let everybody do their thing. Mac played some great piano fills on the "Krog" Triton!

NEW BRAVE NEW WORLD CD - "SPORK"

The new Brave New World album, "Spork," is now on sale (see ordering info above). Adam is thrilled to be working with mixing wizard Jeff Jones, also known as the Jedi Master. Adam worked with Jeff a while back at RVI studios, and Jeff helped record and mix Adam's first solo album, "In A Loud Way." Jeff recently won a Grammy for his production work on Dr. John's new CD, "The City That Care Forgot."

The album, originally intended as a 25 minute EP, will now be a regular length CD. Adam says "we had enough strong material, so what the heck..." The recording approach and the material are very 'old school'; most of the songs were recorded live in the studio, that is, the whole band playing together at the same time, like back-in-the-day! The music is uncompromising, there are no attempts at a 'radio song', just loud, blazing, EPIC slabs of face-melting jazz-rock. Tracking was done at world famous Avatar Studios in New York City, and mixing is proceeding at Jeff Jones' World Alert Studios, also in New York.

Why "Spork"? Well, sporks don't fit easily into any common category. Neither does jazz-rock! ...And there you have it!!! A Special Preview Edition of the new CD will be available (hopefully) in time for our tour, sometime in mid-October. Make sure you don't miss out on this sure-to-be-a-collector's-item-maybe-sometime-pretty-far-down-the-road-in- the-future Special Preview Edition!!

ADAM WITH 'MILES FROM INDIA'

1

Return of the Miles 1986 band: Darryl Jones, Adam, Vince Wilburn
in Budapest, August 2009


Adam recently performed with the Miles From India band at this BIG rock festival in Budapest, Hungary, called the Sziget Festival. Adam re-united with Miles compadres Vince Wilburn and Darryl Jones. "It was great playing with those guys again." Adam will be performing with the Miles From India project in Paris on November 2nd (while on tour with Brave New World).




AWESOME RECENT PROJECTS!!!!

1

1This past July adam performed and taught at the Veneto Jazz workshop in Bassano del Grappa, a program put together in connection with the New School University. "The students were all really cool and very talented." Adam also had a great time playing with the excellent faculty musicians; Dave Glasser on sax, Ron Horton on trumpet, Dave Stryker on guitar, Amy London on vocals, Cameron Brown on bass, and Jeff Hirshfiled on drums. And a shout out to coordinator Teri Lucas! One of Adam's totally favorite things in Italy:
spaghetti vongole!


SOLO SYNTH CONCERT

1

In addition to the workshop Adam also did a Solo Synth Concert in conjunction with Veneto Jazz's sister festival, the NU Fest, an electronic music festival. Adam performed an hour of improvised and composed solo electronic pieces, using mostly Moog gear supplied by synthesizer expert Enrico Cosimi (thank you Enrico!). The concert, in the medieval courtyard of the Museo Civici, was received extremely well by both the public and the press. Adam hopes to do more Solo Synth concerts in 2010.


AWESOME JAMS IN THE ALPS

1In August Adam was at the Outreach Music Workshop
in Schwaz, Austria, teaching and performing. This year
the theme was "Miles ...And More," so Adam was
involved with most of the special events.

Especially exciting was a performance of the Miles'
complete "Tribute To Jack Johnson" album, with Franz
Hackl on trumpet, Mike Kenneally on guitar, Brian Beller
on bass, Lorenz Hargassner on sax and Abe Fogle
on drums.

Other concerts included a cool recreation of the entire
"Doo Bop" album featuring Austrian beat-boxers
Bauchklang, and the complete "Bitches Brew"
performed by the Outreach Orchestra.

The events were a big success, and it is possible a
CD of the "Jack Johnson" performance might be
made available soon. So hang tough, bub.



NOW THIS IS REAL RETRO!


1

While in Austria Adam also played with Franz Hackl, master trombonist Dave Taylor, legendary french horn player John Clark and recorder virtuoso Winifried Hackl at a very famous ancient monastary, Stifts Stams. This place was built in like 1100 AD! For this special private event Adam played harpsichord!! (they call it a 'cembalo' in Europe...) The music was a sort of baroque-meets-jazz concept, and the concert was very successful. Repetoire ranged from medieval music to "Billie Jean."




ALSO!!!!

DROID
Adam will be performing with Droid, the 'live' drum n' bass project led by Amir Ziv and Jordan Mclean, at a Special Loft Concert on October 10th in the Lower East Side. Click here for details. This particular configuration of Droid will be a trio with Adam covering the bass AND keys, plus special guest vocalist Sissy Clemens. So get a grip, pal!

BELEDO

Adam just played a very cool gig with Uraguyan master guitarist Beledo at the Yonkers Riverfest. We played Beledo's original material, he has some really good tunes. On bass was Lincoln Goines, with Kim Plainfield on drums. The band was killing, and Adam hopes to do more gigs with these guys.

JAMMING WITH THE ROOTS!

Adam has also been playing off and on at the Roots Jam at the Highline Ballroom in NYC. "What a killer band. It's a great revue of rappers and instrumentalists. Mos Def sat in a few weeks ago!"

MOOG-related NEWS!!!!

1

Last June Adam visited the Moog factory in Asheville, North Carolina. "It was a blast! Everyone was so nice. What a great place." A big shout out to MoogFolks Mike Adams, Linda Lafferty and Chris Stack!! Thank you! While down there Adam picked up his new Voyager OLD SCHOOL, one of the last available! This synth is Truly Pure Analog; no midi, no patch memory, no digital elements. It has the same voice architecture as the regular Voyager, but without any 1's and 0's confusing the issue. This baby SINGS! Sound just floats out of it like water. Of course I will probably use the regular Voyager on most gigs (it still sounds great, of course); program memory has pretty much become a necessity in this day-and-age. But I will be using this sucker in the studio constantly!
Check out Adam jamming in Frankfurt at the Moog Booth!

MILES FROM INDIA PROJECT


1Produced by Bob Belden, Adam co-produced and performed on some of the tracks on this exciting new double CD concept album featuring renowned Indian musicians collaborating with Miles alumni. The Miles alumni include John McLaughlin, Chick Corea, Ron Carter, Jimmy Cobb, Lenny White, Mike Stern, Pete Cosey, Michael Henderson, Benny Reitveld, Vince Wilburn, Robert Irving and many others! The Indian musicians are all exceptional, but there is one track, "Ife (fast)," where Adam plays some Minimoog alongside this amazing female violinist, Kala Ramnath, that is a particular favorite. Wow. There will be a few select performances with some version of this project in New York and L.A. Adam will be performing with the Miles From India project at Town Hall in New York City on May 9th, 2008." The album will be released in April.
