I enjoy finding surprising ways to arrange classic songs like these: a Brazilian-samba version of ’Fly Me to the Moon,’ a reggae treatment for ’Summertime,’ and ’Come Together’ as a hip-hop/funk tune. It is such a thrill to see ideas take shape through the talents and skills of my fellow musicians.

Happy listening and welcome to the show!
- John Adams
As an accomplished acoustic and electric bassist, John Adams is one of the Southwest’s most versatile and in-demand jazz, pop and studio musicians. He currently leads various performing groups. John served as Music Director and performed weekly for three-and-a-half years at Dallas’ prestigious Crescent Court Hotel. Adams holds Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from the University of North Texas, where for ten years he was the jazz bass professor. He is also active as a producer/arranger, a composer, clinician, and an instructional author.
John toured extensively with jazz great Woody Herman and others. He has backed vocalists Mel Torme, Rosemary Clooney, Wayne Waston, and Sandi Patti, and jazz artists such as Randy Brecker, Marvin Stamm, Bill Mays, Carl Fontana, Chet Baker, Clark Terry, and Dave Liebman. His broad musical background has also included extensive orchestral, pop, and show work.
Adams’ debut CD, "Jump Shot," (’96) features New York and regional artists, and showcases his formidable writing skills. "Fly By Night" (’99) features members of John’s exceptional acoustic-jazz quartet in an intimate club setting, and the compelling, "With You In Mind" CD (’01) was released nationwide (with airplay on over 130 stations), and features top musicians from Dallas, Austin, and L.A. "The John Adams Group - Live!" (’04) captures the intensity and variety of John’s five-piece group in concert. The latest release, “Trios,” (’06) features five different combinations of jazz trios covering a broad spectrum of styles and striking arrangements of standards.
