CLIFFORD ADAMS: FORMER BANDMATE OF KOOL & THE GANG SUCCUMBS TO CANCER


Trombonist ADAMS  RIP

CLIFFORD ADAMS (62)  has died from liver cancer. The Trenton, New Jersey-native was perhaps most widely appreciated as a longstanding member of Kool & The Gang Band (playing the now classic solo on their 1983 crossover hit, “Joanna”). Adams was also a seasoned jazz player who began his recording career with organist Charles Earland and later played with giants that include Max Roach, Lou Donaldson, Art Blakey, Sonny Rollins, Sonny Stitt, Richard “Groove” Holmes, Roy Haynes and Clark Terry, among others. as we salute  and say good bye to him we also offer our prayers to his family
