colossal keyboard creativity Adam Hersh – Tornado Watch

colossal keyboard creativity Adam Hersh – TORNADO WATCH:  Though this is my first listen to keyboardist Adam, it was clear from the first note that we are witnessing colossal keyboard creativity on his upcoming release (17 May, 2024).  Here’s a LIVE performance (different players than are on the album) to get you familiar with his originality and high-energy style…

You’ll find several other high-end performances when you SUBSCRIBE to Adam’s YouTube channel (as I did, right away).

It was pure pleasure to listen to the 7:03 “Concessions“… Adam and his players (Evan Abounassar – trumpet, Devin Daniels alto saxophone, Andrew Renfroe – guitar, Jermaine Paul – bass and Myles Martin – drums) take you on one of the sweetest jazz rides you’ve ever had on this splendid straight-ahead jazz tune.  I absolutely LOVED each of the solos on this Adam original (and you will, too)!

As soon as I started listening to the 9:00 “Parallel Motion” (another original by Adam), my choice for personal favorite of the ten tantalizing tunes was made… there’s a mighty mellow feel through the entire song, and the energetic interplay between Adam’s keys and the other instruments will make your day (it certainly made mine)… this song should (definitely) be considered for awards.

Adam and all his players get a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99 for this adventurous jazz album.  Get more information on Adam’s website, or pre-order the album (digital or CD) on the Bandcamp page below.
