"Concert Review: Revisiting Marvin – Marvin Gaye Tribute…"

Last Thursday night, Marko Nobles of Injoy Enterprises and Danny Brookings of Make It Happen Entertainment were the faces behind this amazing show put together with a host of indie soul singers. Both albums, What’s Going On and Let’s Get It On were being revisited. The Adam Ramsay – CJ Glass Quartet provided the melodies for the soiree, along with the illustrious artists. It was a bill that guaranteed a night of unparalleled performances and sure enough, everyone showed up and OUT for a spectacular night. - SoulAfrodisiac

"Music Reviews"

“Not only [was] the music great but the performance itself was rehearsed to perfection ... The recital was a great mix of good music and a good show that had the audience swingin’ along.” - The Cayugan

"Maranda Pennington"

“Born and bred in Ithaca, Glass is a jazz studies major. His main instrument is guitar, but he also plays bass and sings with a sexy, bluesy growl ... the band was grooving together and presenting a much more cohesive front than less-showy jazz bands.” - The Ithacan


Still working on that hot first release.



The Adam Ramsay - C.J. Glass Quintet is a jazz performance group currently based in New York City. Its members, two of whom are alumni of the Vermont All-State Jazz Ensemble, hail from along the eastern seaboard. Originally founded as The Delta Brothers Band, the seedlings for The Adam Ramsay - C.J. Glass Quintet were planted at Ithaca College several years ago by Mike Treat (trumpet), Adam Ramsay (saxophones, clarinet, flute), and C.J. Glass (guitar, voice). Alex Rivas (drum set) and Steve Gelfand (electric bass guitar) joined the group shortly after its relocation to New York City. Individually, the musicians in The Adam Ramsay - C.J. Glass Quintet have performed with Gary Smulyan (Vanguard Jazz Orchestra), Lew Soloff (Blood, Sweat, and Tears), Hilary Kole, Michael Mossman (Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra), Hall and Oates, and in Broadway musicals including Rent and Little Shop of Horrors. Together, The Quintet strives to present original and standard jazz repertoire that is exciting, progressive, and accessible, while remaining rooted in tradition.
