MIKE CLARK gained worldwide recognition as one of America's foremost jazz and funk drummers while playing with Herbie Hancock's group in the early 1970's. Clark became known as a major innovator through his incisive playing on Hancock's Thrust album, which garnered him an international cult following. He is currently busy touring with his own Prescription Organ Trio / Duo, featuring Jerry Z, doing clinics and performing at clubs and concerts nationwide.
Clark's work continues to influence successive generations of drummers since his explosive arrival on the music scene with Herbie Hancock and the Headhunters.
The solo he played on the album Thrust, on the song Actual Proof," is one of the best drum solos on any of my albums. So many people have remarked about that solo, saying, 'Incredible.'" --Herbie Hancock
