Mike Clark, legendary drummer and former member of Herbie Hancock’s Headhunters band, can now add another name to his illustrious music career as the Funk Wizard of Manhattan. In addition to producing his new discovery, singer/nu-hip spoken word artist Tony Adamo’s CD, he had to bring in the right mixer/engineer who could funk the tracks for Adamo’s groove vocabulary and triplet soul-jazz voicing’s. Clark was looking for a mixing fool of an engineer who could dig the new perspective on the nu-hip speak vocals that he and Adamo are puttin’ down. That engineer is Tim Ouimette, a hip to the bone musician /composer who has played or written for Ray Charles, The 4 Tops, The Temptations, Blood Sweat and Tears and Aretha Franklin. In addition, Ouimette has composed music for TV, Cable and commercials. Nuff said! Now let’s get down with the new musical zounds of Tony Adamo and Mike Clark.
