Music Without Boundaries
To experience the music of Adelante is to be taken on an aural journey that touches mind, body and spirit. The music of Adelante is rooted in the improvisational approaches of Modern Jazz and Classical Music. Adelante creates a musical brew that knows no musical boundaries…relishing in the challenge, that all musical styles can be complimentary and weaved together to create something musically and sonically beautiful, new and unique.
Adelante is often compared to Weather Report, Chick Corea's Return to Forever, Medeski-Martin-Wood, The Bad Plus, The European Jazz Trio and Esbjorn Svensson Trio.
Adelante's new CD, "Breathe" is now available for purchase at performances and at CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon and more...

Music of tremendous depth…sort of like Brian Eno meets very early Weather Report. “Adelante” is a very real mix of music from many cultures and styles…

"That music you guys were playing at Borders was awesome. It's the kind of stuff I'm always looking for but can never find. I'm going to use your music as inpiration to elevate my poetry. I wish someone from ECM could put an ear on it."

"....I wanted to thank you AGAIN for the Adelante CD you slipped me years ago. You have no idea (well, maybe now you do) how much I've enjoyed it all this time. It's great to get up with, and great to go to sleep with as well. Last night AND this morning I played it/ it probably hits my player about once a month which is pretty "heavy rotation" for me. So dreamy, so eloquently played. Still makes me think of Weather Report, esp. "I Sing The Body Electric". A job well done ..... George Wallace (recording artist).

I recently viewed/listened to Adelante's performance from the Schoodic Arts Festival in Winter Harbor, ME. Once again I find myself comparing them to Weather Report...specically during the time of "I Sing The Body Electric" with Miroslav Vitous on acoustic bass...nothing retro here, just a serious nod to a wonderful band!

Like few other ensembles before them(“Oregon” and “Codona” come to mind), the trio “Adelante” incorporates music from a variety of genres(ie: jazz, world, modern classical) in a seamless, natural manner. Listening to these three more than proficient musicians, one imagines traveling a soundscape from the freezing, barren Northlands to the sun drenched, vibrant home of Mohammed. I encourage every open-minded music lover to discover them…
BILL McLAUGHLIN-WFMU 91.1FM
These guys can definitely play...and don't be surprised someday if you see them scoring a movie soundtrack...

“Adelante’s” musicianship is a joyous experience indeed. Music for the mind, body and soul…
JOHN MAGNIE-“The Subdudes”
Quality creative music is hard to find…look no further, “Adelante” is it! “Adelante” is like hearing a rainbow…
CHARLIE WOOD-editor “The Sandpaper”
“Adelante” should be a welcomed addition to any music library. Its masterful musicianship, superb sound quality and earnest, free-form approach will take you places you’ve never been. It will expand your mind and heart…
ROOSEVELT LEWIS JR-Reviewer-CDNOW
I'm not a fan of jazz, but Adelante's original approach to jazz/improvised music really captured me...Jody's drumming is "A Heartbeat, A Natural Force That Pins You! "...Woz and Xar really are wonderful players that are right there with Jody...
