Biography

Greg Adams’ career has included success as an arranger, composer, conductor, and performer and earned him both Grammy and Emmy nominations and an International Broadcasting Award from The Hollywood Radio and Television Society. It has been a musical travelogue that has spanned nearly four decades, taking him on worldwide tours and contributing to some of the most important recordings in pop culture.

The journey continues with the ambitious release of Cool To The Touch. Enjoy the ride that will take you down a path of unforgettable melodies infused in a mix of jazz, pop and funk powered by Greg’s soulful trumpet.

While the music is pure 2006, its track titles conjure up the independence and hipness of the 60s jazz lifestyle. That inspiration carries throughout the album taking you on a cool musicalsojourn that is both melodic and energetic.

His 1995 solo debut, Hidden Agenda, went all the way to #1 for five weeks at the top of the Smooth Jazz charts, fueled by Adams sublime muted trumpet and a smoldering remake of Sade’s “Smooth Operator.” The album received wide critical acclaim and established him as a major architect of the emerging “smooth jazz” sound. Greg took a break from his session schedule and released the much anticipated 2002 follow-up album, Midnight Morning, generating two top ten singles, “Roadhouse” and “Sup with That.” Adams’ third solo project FireFly, released in 2004, was among the top 100 honored at NAC radio in 2005.

Legendary for the horn arrangements that created the signature sound and have made Tower of Power one of the most enduring musical entities today, Adams is a founding member of Tower of Power recording fourteen albums with the group on four major labels and millions in record sales.
