New Orleans R&B crooner Johnny Adams performed and recorded regularly from the 1950s to the '90s, covering everything from blues to soul to jazz. ESSENTIAL RECORDINGS brings together some of Adams's most memorable jazz sides. With a smooth vocal style and a deeply honeyed voice, Adams takes on classics from the American songbook such as "Come Rain Come Shine," "Love for Sale," and "I Cover the Waterfront." That he receives musical assistance Harry Connick Jr., Dr. Lonnie Smith, and a host of top-drawer New Orleans talent only makes this classy affair sparkle more brightly.
