Soul’s Cookin’ with Tony Adamo and Mike Clark
Fred Harris/Urbanzonepushradio New York City,NY
A new conception in soulin’ and groove time was born when legendary drummer Mike Clark, co-leader of the Headhunters, formerly (Herbie Hancock and the Headhunters) took one step and beyond by bringing in guitarist/composer/arranger, Steve Homan and jazz, funk organist/arranger, Delbert Bump for session work on Tony Adamo’s new CD. Their recording session solidified the soul cookin’ groove that is now the foundation for Adamo’s new funk music. Bump and Homan have previously recorded with Mike Clark on his CARNIVAL OF SOUL CD. Clark has also brought in high voltage funksters with some heavy souln’ in the form of Rob Dixon and Gary Mielke, the co-producers of the Headhunters new PLATINUM CD. Super percussionist and long time Headhunter band member, Bill Summers, laid down his percussion tracks at an earlier recording session with Clark, Dixon and Gary Mielke. Mike Clark will oversee Adamo’s recording session starting on October 19, 2011 at the Static Shack Recording, Indianapolis, IN.
