Andy Adamson is a self-taught Ann Arbor native composer and musician. Starting his original band journey in sixth grade, Andy has composed music for his all original bands and played keyboards for over 50 years. Influenced by the likes of: John Coltrane, the Mahavishnu Orchestra, and Chick Corea, Andy has composed a vast catalogue of original modern jazz compositions. Over the years Andy has played many styles of music: jazz standards in solo and trio setting, cuban folk music with Melodioso, rockabily swing with Dick Siegel’s Ministers of Melody, funk with Norma Jean Bell and the All Stars, disco and rock with multiple Detroit based club bands, and rhythm and blues with the Ann Arbor band F.U.B.A.R. Andy’s latest band released A Cry For Peace as a quartet, and most recently his quintet released First Light both of which features a collection of his traditional and fusion jazz compositions.
Andy’s composition, “First Light", shows talent and energy that few jazz piano players on the scene have today… if this one doesn’t carry you right away to jazz heaven – you’re not the jazz fan you claim to be! ...driving precision jazz of the Andy Adamson Quintet - Contemporary Fusion
