“Drummer Mike Clark has got to be one of the slickest trickiest drummers out there…”
Acclaimed master drummer Mike Clark brings his formidable quartet to the Zinc jazz club on Saturday, October 13. He’s supported by trumpeter Eddie Henderson, pianist Michael Wolff, and bassist Ben Allison.
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 1970s. Mike became known as a major innovator through his incisive playing on Hancock’s Thrust album, which garnered him an international cult following.
While often referred to as the Tony Williams of funk, Mike considers himself a jazz drummer, and in fact has become one of the most vital to sit behind a set. He’s performed with jazz greats such as Herbie Hancock, Chet Baker, Vince Guaraldi, Tony Bennett, Wayne Shorter, Joe Henderson, Eddie Henderson, Rob Dixon, Bobby Hutcherson, Woody Shaw, Donald Harrison, Larry Coryell, Jack Wilkins, Mike Wolff, Wallace Roney, Geri Allen, Billy Childs, James Genus, Bob Hurst, Chris Potter, Onaje Allan Gumbs, Bobby McFerrin, Al Jarreau, Dave Liebman, Nat Adderly, Oscar Brown Jr., Bill Doggett, Nicholas Payton, Christian McBride, Mose Allison, Maxine Brown, Gil Evans and his orchestra and many illuminating etceteras too numerous to list.
Showtime at 8 pm. Tickets: $25 advance / $30 day of show. For more info call (212) 477-9462 or visit https://www.zincjazz.com.
