”Adkins literally speaks through his horn with a soft-edged but full tone that supports his logically connecting, yet elliptical phrases. Able to say more with a simple two-note descending interval than many do in an entire solo, Adkins can present such simple material refracted and “rotated” many different ways until they have expanded to fill the musical space. His feel for rhythm, while never actually stating a distinct pulse, is delicious and reinforces the adage that one can say much more by saying less.”

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
