Kool And The Gang's Trombonist Clifford Adams Plays At Downtown Trenton Cafe

TRENTON-- Well-known trombonist Clifford Adams of Kool and The Gang performed at Cafe International in Downtown Trenton Friday night. Yesterday, Anwar's Reflections-- a Trentonian affiliate-- visited the Cafe's Jazz Night hosted by the Unknown Poet, a popular spoken word artist and performer from the Trenton community.

Both Adams and the Unknown Poet hit the stage in what would turn out to be a very cool and jazz-like experience. The setting embodied the very essence of jazz with its smooth yet upbeat atmosphere. The aroma of freshly cooked fish and baked macaroni and cheese were simmering in the air. From firsthand experience, I can tell you the vibe was incredible, you couldn't help but bob your head and tap your feet as Adams and the Unknown Poet performed. Adams was assisted by James Stewart on the saxophone, Dan Kestelink on the the organ, and Joe Brown on drums.

During the show, audience members were also invited to come to the stage and perform a song, make an announcement, or recite a poem. Members of the audience also won prizes. For a fun and entertaining night out on the town, head on over to Cafe International Friday, August 5th for their next Jazz Night and you will surely experience great jazz music, spoken word, food, and positive vibrations.. Fun, safe, and positive vibes, you can't go wrong.

Sandy, an area resident, came with her friend and said that she enjoyed the show because the saxophonist Johnny Stewart was amazing. Hassan Abdullah, a city man, said the show was great because he loves "grown folks music". Karen Seals, a Bordentown resident, said she had a ball at the show and that she loved Clifford Adams and the Unknown Poet because she has followed them for years.
