Song of the Day: Barry Adamson, "Walk on Fire"

I learned about UK jazzy-soulful musician Barry Adamson just in time to provide me with a much-needed Friday afternoon aural pick-me-up. Previously the bassist for the Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Adamson will release his next solo album Back to the Cat stateside on April 22, and his first U.S. show is planned for New York on May 13.

Of course, the bass line is great, and the horns are sparingly used to just add a lil' something extra from time to time.
