As music critic and verbal shrapnel-thrower Lester Bangs keenly observed of great success in the music business: "Once you''ve made your mark on history, those who can''t will be so grateful they''ll turn it into a cage for you."
There''s, apparently, no cage strong enough to hold punk legend Bobby Adams. After more than two decades of playing hardcore music with the iconic band 7Seconds, his ears now ringing more or less permanently, Adams is exploring whole new worlds of music. Whole new planets in whole new solar systems, actually.
Adams is trading in the three-chord progressions and machine gun-beats of punk to weave the intricate fretwork of smooth jazz.
Bobby Adams says his inspiration for the harmonic vernacular of the genre comes from riding 100 mph through the desert with his motorcycle club. He''s currently working on a piece called "Desert Trippin," which can best be described as instrumental R&B, trance-laced, prescription-strength smooth jazz. There''s a lot of repetition and development of themes that have the self-described perfectionist considering and reconsidering every single guitar note on the album. The songs are soundtracks to certain events, places and times, geographical in every sense.
''We can''t get enough of this beaconing sound - it is just like a special star winking at us across the desert skies!''
