Album Notes
"Didn’t Wanna Do It” provokes dark shadows back lite by the glow of a city sky line. Funk driven by the bass of Dwayne “Smitty" Smith, and Greg Adams flugelhorn tells the story of something sinister going on. The Urban Remix by Stan Dart and Mastered by Stephen Sherrard takes the listener back to a cinematic urban city scape in much the way you would expect James Bond to follow chase. The sixth sequenced song from the full album Greg Adams East Bay Soul That's Life CD which was originally released on April 21, 2015. The song co- written by Greg Adams, Dwayne “ Smitty” Smith and Nick Milo. Here the remix highlights Greg Adams on Flugelhorn, Joey Navarro, Keys, Kay-Ta Matsuno, Guitar , Dwayne ” Smitty” Smith, Bass, Herman Matthews, Drums and Johnny Sandoval, Percussion.

East Bay Soul is the next creative step forward in a career filled with magic moments spanning over four decades, garnering both Grammy and Emmy nominations and an International Broadcasting Award from The Hollywood Radio and Television Society along the way. An enduring recording artist and performer, the charismatic trumpeter has earned the respect of his peers and fans alike worldwide.

In his new musical pursuit trumpeter Greg Adams continues his artistic evolution alongside East Bay Soul with the dynamic THAT’S LIFE - A collection of eleven songs that fuses his love for vintage soul music, pop, with powerful horns and gorgeous orchestration.
The spark that struck the chord for the creative process” say’s Adams ”hit me when I heard in my head a bombastic themed song with an orchestra and a big horn section that reminded me of the iconic “That’s Life” recorded by Frank Sinatra. I wrote the song with Nick Milo and sent it to lyricist Rocky Maffit. Rocky had it for a while and nothing was coming to him, until one day he said “Damned If I Do” out loud. Now we had the title and lyric for the song. The recording was almost done and I thought to myself what do I call the album and there it is was staring at me “That’s’ Life”…

As the album unfolds with the sexy “Little Black Dress”, Adams realizes he’s writing the music first and the lyrics will come next, an interesting process that lyricist Maffit says was so much fun, because it usually is the other way around. The mysterious ”Hush Hush” is co-written with Dwayne “Smitty” Smith. “Is just so “Dope” as Adams calls it. The groove and trumpet melody are so minimal we just let the song end itself… “

Notably “ Come Together” by The Beatles pays deference to the original fueled by Greg’s muted trumpet.

Adams artfully produced the sonic funk driven “Earth To Mars” with a magnetic performance that is both retro and modern.
The album boasts four songs with a full orchestra, lush arrangements masterfully orchestrated by Greg. “ Grow Old With Me” tells a story of love at first sight. “Without You” is a story without lyrics that conveys the story of love lost… Greg’s soulful trumpet is infused here. Darryl Walker’s stirring vocal performances on “ Going In Circles” and “ Let’s Stay Together” are delivered with soul and passion that embodies the timelessness of these two classic R&B songs.

Setting the bedrock for THAT’S’ LIFE is Kay-Ta Matsuno, guitar, Joey Navarro, keys, Dwayne “Smitty” Smith, bass, Herman Matthews, drums and. Johnny Sandoval adds the essential addition of Latin percussion. Their collaboration in the studio and commanding performance is brilliant.

Fueling the funk… is a dream horn section headed by Adams known for his percussive and on top of the beat style, endures throughout the album and is a tight a horn section as they come. Lee Thornburg, trumpet, flugelhorn, French horn and trombone, Johnnie Bamont, alto, tenor and bari sax. Greg Vail, alto and tenor sax.
With East Bay Soul Greg say’s “ It’s like looking bliss in the eye. Before you know it we’ve made a record. It is amazing how it happens

With three studio albums to their credit all while headlining music festivals and performing in premiere jazz clubs nationwide, East Bay Soul continues to build a strong following that embodies the passion they generate with their audiences that have become to be known as True Funk Soldiers!
