While Grammy and Emmy nominated arranger and trumpeter Greg Adams will forever be renowned as a co-founder of the legendary Tower of Power, it’s exciting to note that his equally explosive ensemble East Bay Soul is quickly closing in on its first decade of kickin’ recordings and performances. The brass fired ensemble’s stirringly eclectic latest album CONVERSATION has it all and, per its title, connects on many emotional levels. It’s got loose, greasy funk, easy flowing traditional swing, sly strutting sensuality and phenomenal, brass fired R&B vocal tunes by lead singer Darryl Walker – including a searing twist on an Otis Redding classic. Get in this CONVERSATION!
For Immediate Release: Greg Adams and East Bay Soul Conversation CD

With Greg Adams’ approach that music is a language… the CONVERSATION continues.
