Looking for A Song
I don't know if it's still in print now, but there was a jazz magazine circulating in the U.S. in the 90s that included a sampler CD (presumably of new artists/albums) with each issue. I'm looking for the edition that included two Mark Whitfield songs on the CD (from the album 7th Ave. Stroll), sometime about the mid-90s, but if anyone can simply remember the name of the magazine so I can find it myself, I would be grateful.
I'm fairly sure that it's not any of the following magazines:
All About Jazz
Culturekiosque - Jazz
Down Beat Magazine
Ink Blot Magazine
Jazz Guitar Online
Jazz Improv Magazine
Jazz Institute of Chicago
Jazz Now Magazine
Jerry Jazz Musician
Just Jazz Guitar
Sounds of Timeless Jazz

Headhunter Artists Are Soul Funkin' With Singer Tony Adamo
The famed Headhunters jazz/fusion/funk band (once-backing members for Herbie Hancock), are recording with singer and hip/spoken word artist, Tony Adamo in October. Rob Dixon and Gary Mielke, the co-producers of the Headhunters new CD, PLATINUM on Indianapolis based label Owl Studios, along with legendary funk drummer and Headhunters member Mike Clark, will co-produce Adamo’s new CD. Clark, who has played on two of Adamo’s previous releases, STRAIGHT UP DEAL and WHAT IS HIP? has added master percussionist and long time Headhunter member, Bill Summers to record new tracks for Adamo’s CD.
This won’t be the first time the Headhunters have brought some kool struttin’ and soul funkin’ to Adamo’s music. On his “WHAT IS HIP? CD, Mike Clark (drums), Bill Summers (percussion) and new Headhunter, Richie Goods (bass) cooked up a new soul groove for Adamo’s retooling of the Tower of Power hit, “What is Hip?” along with Tower of Power co-founder Stephen “Doc” Kupka. They fused an insatiable groove that is interwoven throughout this funk/jazz/ and hip/spoken word mash up of a song. The funky “Doc’s” iconic horn playing will be added to Adamo’s new CD at a later date to anchor the horn section headed up by Headhunter member Rob Dixon (soprano/alto/tenor sax and keyboards). Tony Adamo is a Strokeland record artist. Doc Kupka is the founder and owner of Strokeland records.

Music For Angels Is A Unique Instrumental Music Offering, With Jazz Tinged, Bluesy Moments
'Music for Angels' is the first in a series of CDs by Trinity, a project featuring electronic music veteran David Wright, Neil Fellowes and Nigel Turner-Heffer.
The three accomplished musicians are also synonymous with the classic electronic rock band Code Indigo, but as 'Trinity' they follow a much more relaxed and chilled path into bluesy chill-out music that also has its feet firmly in the meditation music genre.
‘Music for Angels’ is a gorgeous blend of the beautiful arrangements and delicate keys of David & Neil, underpinned by the gentle acoustic guitar work of Nigel. Indeed, Trinity combines its respective talents to present a unique vision of new instrumental music that's both structured and improvised. It features superb interaction between the musicians resulting in a refreshing style of new age music with strong elements of blues and jazz.
‘Music for Angels’ is music ideal for relaxation, meditation or simply just chilling out. More than that though, it really is music to savor!

Tony Adamo - "No Strings Attached"
Tony Adamo keeps the soul coming with his new video and song “No Strings Attached” from the album Straight Up Deal. With a tower of power’s worth of horns being played by Tower of Power members Skip Mesquite and Mic Gillette (who wrote the horn arrangement), Tony’s sound is funkier than ever. The vocal and horn performances on “No Strings Attached” are the strongest yet from Adamo and company. Smooth lyrics make the song even greater as Tony exudes coolness and a special touch that seem to be his signature. Adamo really makes some noise with this track, which is sure to be a crowd pleaser for fans of the Soul and R&B genres.

ca465 - Claudio Nuñez - triste, solitario, final... (sad, lonely, final...)
Artist: Claudio Nuñez
Title: triste, solitario, final... (sad, lonely, final...)#ca465
Keywords: piano; free improvisation; jazz
Sad, lonely, final... is a set of free improvisations, or in other words:
compositions in real time for solo piano. Lonely meditations that go through a lot of places, colours and musics: from the melancholy of buenos aires and her tango to the violence of new york and her jazz, crossing the impressionist landscapes of european music and beyond...

Tony Adamo - "This Time It's Real"
If you’ve ever been in love, you know the feeling you get when that special someone comes along and everything within you shouts, “This is it!! This is the one!!” Well, Tony Adamo has captured the sentiments of that with a remake of Tower of Power’s hit “This Time It’s Real,” and he hit the nail right on the head. The strong Tower of Power horn section does an outstanding job and a funky sax solo makes the song even more enjoyable. This track is definitely a groove and will entice the listener into reminiscing about the emotions you have when the right person is in your life. With his special soulful sound, Tony delivers another stellar performance. “This Time It’s Real” is a happy song that will put you in a good place. You can dance, chill, or just cruise to this one, but whatever you do, you’ll enjoy it.

Tony Adamo - "Eleanor Rigby"
Musician and singer Tony Adamo isn’t afraid to tackle a classic and put his own spin on it, incorporating influences of blues, jazz, pop, rock, and many other genres. This master of soul brings back great old songs in a manner that can be appreciated by those who heard the originals and music lovers who are hearing the songs for the first time. With Adamo’s remake of the The Beatles classic song “Eleanor Rigby,” Adamo brings back memories while getting his pop infused with funk on. Adamo’s voice breathes new life into the track, along with the innovativeness of the spoken word and a nice guitar solo to boot. “Eleanor Rigby” is from Adamo’s new CD entitled, “What Is Hip?”

ca459 - Crozzoli Miguel Angel - Irene (live album)
Artist: Crozzoli Miguel Angel
Title: Irene (live album)#ca459
Keywords: contemporary jazz
Crozzoli Miguel is a saxophone player from Argentina, who takes his studies at Buenos Aires; tries to discover in his sound and compositions a south-view and feeling from the afro-american heritage that we are part.
Irene engage the quest of group improvisation, stained of musical structures that are defined on freedom, on the commitment of the being. Where we find ourselves going into the surface. The historicity and corporeity that shows every look and every sigh, acquiring the value of the genuine and unfinished. The eternal and ephemeral moment, where expressions raise on the commitment with the sound of surprise. Beliefs which are the bases of the quartet… becoming part of the whole.
Musicians: Crozzoli Miguel (sax and composition), Chahin Juan (guitar), Camba Ignacio (bass), Menarguez Matias (drums).

Robert Lauri - Face to Face
In his latest innovation, “Face To Face,” Robert Lauri takes us on a musical voyage, cascading through the sounds and visions of the big, bright and beautiful city. The video transitions along with the music to other settings and moods, giving the viewer an visual and auditory stimulating experience. Lauri is at his best in this improvisational jazz piece, with a great horn section that builds towards the end, and well placed flute melodies. The video and track are great for cruising, a nice social gathering, or a quiet evening with that special someone.

ca457 - Bubamara Brass Band - Bubamarija / Kashtanizma (EP)
Artist: Bubamara Brass Band
Title: Bubamarija / Kashtanizma (EP)#ca457
Keywords: world; balkan brass; gypsy; ethnic; jazz
This orchestra possesses tremendous positive power which, apparently, should be the integral attribute of the Balkan music, but is far not at each foreign collective it turns out such shaking and positive. «Bubamara Brass Band» – a pleasant exception.
Этот оркестр обладает потрясающей позитивной энергетикой, которая, казалось бы, должна являться неотъемлемым атрибутом балканской музыки, но далеко не у каждого иностранного коллектива получается такой уж потрясающей и позитивной. «Bubamara Brass Band» – приятное исключение.

Singer Tony Adamo On USNEWJAZZ Jazz Infusion 2 Compilation
A beat poet for the new generation? Or a jazz-funk crooner? Take your pick.
I think that either one of these characterizations could easily describe Tony Adamo. Tony comes to USNewJazz.com with two tracks from his recently released CD – “What is Hip?”
“What Is Hip”
When I first heard this cover of this Tower of Power song from 1973, it brought back memories of other spoken word songs. However, Tony’s offering is not as “gimmicky” as these other songs. There is a strong sense of cool sophistication in the way he delivers the lyrics. It doesn’t hurt that he has a set of smooth pipes. It also doesn’t hurt that a great group of musicians that add so much to this song backs him. A special “thumbs up” to Sandy Griffith, whose background vocals give this song a real (for lack of a better reference) “Motown Feel”.
