”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.”
