I am pleased to announce the release of my first experimental electronic music CD, "Parallel Universe", on the Composer's Concordance/NAXOS label. Featuring cover art and photos by the great Lasse Hoile! The CD is available now via this website, and will be at the Steven Wilson merchandise table on the upcoming tour. The 'official' worldwide release will be April 4th. What does it sound like? Ambient soundscapes and analog bleeps and bloops, with influences from Stockhausen to Tangerine Dream. Pretty out there! For ordering info please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org

ADAM GOES PROG
Adam is happy to announce that he will be continuing with the Steven Wilson band. "The first tour went really well, so it looks like this is turning into a regular thing, at least for now. It's such a great band, and a killer show. I'm especially glad we are going to be doing the US west coast, so all of my friends in California can check it out!" There are also plans for a video shoot on this tour for a live concert DVD. In addition, there will be a release of a live CD recorded on the 2011 European tour available soon, on Steven Wilson's merchandise site "Headphonedust".

Hangin' with the Wayne Escoffery Quintet...
Adam has been performing recently with the excellent tenor saxophonist Wayne Escoffery (Mingus Dynasty, Tom Harrell), augmenting Wayne's existing quartet (which includes Orrin Evans on piano) with synths. Adam is taking the star trek approach, playing colors and lead lines (no Wurly on this one). The band is playing Wayne's new material, and he plans to go into the studio very soon with this project. Stay tuned!
In November/December of 2010 Adam toured with a new project called The Avengers, a sort of Fusion Revivalist concept sporting an all-star line-up: Lincoln Goines on bass, Kim Plainfield on drums, Adam, and Uruguayan guitar hero Beledo, who co-led the band and collaborated with Adam on the material. The Avengers performed 10 concerts in South America, including gigs in Brazil, Uruguay (Montevideo and Minas) and Argentina (Buenos Aires, Neuquen, etc). The tour was very successful and the band hopes to return near the end of the year. WATCH VIDEO!

SUMMER WORKSHOPS: ITALY and AUSTRIA
Adam is teaching again this year at 2 excellent summer workshops in Europe: Veneto Jazz program (in conjunction with The New School University) in Bassano, Italy and The Outreach Music Workshop in Schwaz, Austria. Both workshops are a lot of fun!
VENETO JAZZ PROGRAM in Bassano, Italy
This year the Veneto Jazz program runs from July 11th to July 22nd. It is located in a beautiful Italian city, Bassano Del Grappa (which is near Venice), and has a lot of perks like access to a lot of the major jazz concerts in the area due to its connection with the main jazz promoters in Italy. The program is more geared towards traditional jazz.
There is a great faculty, including Jeff Hirshfield and Cameron Brown and others. In addition to the classes and ensembles, there are lots of local concerts and jams. Adam performed a solo concert here a few years ago that was well received in the local press. WATCH VIDEO: Solo Concert
OUTREACH MUSIC WORKSHOP in Schwaz, Austria
Adam has been performing and teaching at the Outreach Music Workshop for over 10 years. It is more of an experimental music laboratory, actually, and it has always been a high point of the year. Led by renowned Austrian trumpet star Franz Hackl (who Adam collaborates with often), Outreach is one part contemporary music program, one part experimental festival and 3 parts insanity. Located in the heart of the Alps (you can't beat that!), Outreach is a real happening event that never fails to leave a trail of high quality weirdness.
Adam was thrilled to recently do a recording session with one of his heroes, Dr. John / Mac Rebbenack! The project is being put together by Jeff Jones, "The Jedi Master," who mixed both Dr John's most recent Grammy Award winning album "The City That Care Forgot" and Adam's "Spork". It was great to play with Mac, and Jedi just let everybody do their thing. Mac played some great piano fills on the "Krog" Triton!
