CD Reviews

Satisfying across the spectrum

"If you can't afford a vacation this year, invest in Buttermilk Channel instead. This luscious collection of everything from righteous blues to soft, torchy jazz ambience makes the city seem shinier, hipper - and suddenly there's no pressing need to be anywhere other than exactly where you are. But be warned - if you aren't up for a mellow and completely satisfying experience, if you aren't ready to hear a guitar, organ, and snare sound exactly as God intended them to sound together, this album is not for you."
Worry-Free Commitement

(5 out of 5 stars)

"From the gentle opening strums of the title track, "Buttermilk Channel" is all about how commited you are to listening. Adam's sublime guitar work and compositions pull you in as deeply as you want to go; whether it's background music for your dinner party or the engaging and stimulating soundtrack for your quiet day at home. Casual listeners (my friends) and music geeks (me) find drummer Kenny Wolleson, organist Larry Goldings, and Adam's gentle melodic lines, sparely-voiced chords, and generous solo space always makes "Buttermilk Channel" a great spin. Each player's work echoes their influences, yet speaks clearly in their own voice --- modern sounds with plenty of vintage soul. Another plus, you'll definately impress friends and family with your sophisticated taste at gift-giving time (hint). Catch Adam's live show if you can and dig how each piece has evolved."
Push play and walk away - every song is beautiful.

"Once in a while the perfect disc comes along, and this is it. In the car or with the lights down low, Buttermilk Channel's smooth rhythms, tender, often-funky grooves and cooking solos will charm any music fan. Each composition blends gospelesque organ, wispy snare and Adam's soulful guitar into a dreamy jazz experience that creates an atmosphere of having nowhere to be with all day to get there. Easy, soft, subtle and superb, the record gets better each time I hear it."
