Biography
Johnny Adams
The Great Johnny Adams Jazz Album
Rounder Perfect 10 series

Johnny Adams was one of the greatest singers to emerge from the classic rhythm and blues era, with a honeyed voice that could deliver a tender ballad as convincingly as a soul-testifying shout. This collection explores Johnny’s jazz side, in the company of such jazz greats as Dr. Lonnie Smith, Harry Connick, Jr., Houston Person, David Torkanowsky, Alvin “Red” Tyler and many of New Orleans’ leading musicians, along with several arrangements by Wardell Quezergue
