Think soul music is a thing of the past? Or classic R&B, or whatever you'd call the genre that gave the world the music of Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, Bobby "Blue" Bland and Al Green? Think again--think MAN OF MY WORD. Adams' powerful yet velvet-smooth voice is rich with the gospel and blues roots of soul/R&B. His singing recalls Solomon Burke, Walter Jackson and Jerry Butler, with a touch of early '60s Marvin Gaye. He's backed by a combo of New Orleans and Memphis players (featuring blues guitar ace Walter "Wolfman" Washington) who can make with restrained, old-style funk ("Bulldog Break His Chain,") put a country tinge in a wistful ballad ("I Don't Want to Know") and play the blues (the Robert Cray-like "This Time I'm Gone For Good"). Make no mistake--Johnny Adams has The Right Stuff, and he does the tradition proud.
