Mike Clark & The Headhunters Return

Drummer Mike Clark is hitting the road with another stunning group of musicians. While he has toured recently with young lions like Robert Walter, Skerik and Charlie Hunter (he will introduce some relatively unknown musicians to the jazz world later this year), he is kicking off 2006 with a tantalizing and fresh Headhunters lineup. With hundreds of years of combined performing experience, this ensemble fixes to be so funky that you just might be able to smell it.

Bill Summers returns on percussion and vocals, and things should get interesting with first time Headhunters George Porter Jr. (The Meters) on bass, Donald Harrison (Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers) on sax, and Jerry Z (Melvin Sparks) on the organ. These diverse musicians are bonded by a combination of decades of experience playing jazz, yet an ageless zestful approach to performing. They are each very talented at listening and reacting, yet none are shy about “stepping up” when appropriate.
