"Rocket Express II " African Renaissance Blues Songs
African Renaissance Blues (2003) Juno Award winner 2005:
Adam performed with AGS at Live 8 on July 2nd, make poverty history- in Barrie, Ontario, Canada
On his latest album African Renaissance Blues, Adam (Professor) Solomon returns the blues to the African continent where it originated with African slaves.
The effortless manner with which he controls the guitar so that it sings with him, adding a second voice to the piece, exemplifies the talent of this East African native. In African Renaissance Blues, Adam, has resurrected an art form, which is alive in West Africa thanks to a luminary like Ali Farka Toure, but is almost extinct on
the east coast of Africa where the preferred music is soukous.
Adam's style of guitar playing is renaissance because it carefully fuses the Mississippi Delta blues style of BB King and Muddy Waters while highlighting the African blues style-the rippling, almost repetitive guitar resists
moving forward in a linear fashion towards a definite conclusion, instead making circular movements, doubling back on a riff here and a riff there until it reaches an intoxicating climax. Listen to Farmer's Blues and you
will notice Adam's playful inventive talent, which allows him to dart in and out of R&B, a bit of jazz and even a snatch of soukous while steadfastly remaining true to the blues. It's a talent, it's a triumph, and it's a
beautiful album for endless listening.
