The Tornado Brass Band
The Tornado Brass Band featuring Darryl Adams
Adams is a veteran of the New Orleans music scene, with deeper credentials in the marching band community than many musicians of greater age. At six years old he began taking saxophone lessons from his mother. His natural ability to improvise quickly developed along with this formal training allowing him to work professionally on the road at an early age. His forte, in those days was, rhythm & blues; opening for bands like the Meters and the Fabulous Phantoms, he was a show-stealing prodigy with music born into his blood. At age thirteen, when he was conscripted into banjo legend Danny Barker's famous Fairview Baptist Church Brass Band, Adams shifted quickly toward jazz, beginning with the fundamentals and pushing, eventually, toward more progressive styles. Every step in his evolution, from his apprenticeships to the acclaim he would win as founder of the Tornado Brass Band, fell on the foundation of the classic New Orleans Brass Band second-line beat. A regular for years at the Olympia Band's Sunday night sets in Preservation Hall, he was scheduled to make his debut with the house band just days after Hurricane Katrina hit.
Leader bios were pulled from interviews conducted and published by Eve Abrams in the book 'Preservation Hall.'
