Re: Mike Clark
man, i saw mr. clark a couple of months ago at a rock venue here in tallahasse and it was amazing. he came with an organ and sax and that was it. he played his dw floor tom and snare and used the house bass drum which is a tiger print rogers 20 inch drum that was left there a few years ago, hats, crash and two rides. the bass drum sound was a little garrish becuase the sound guy eq'd it like any other night, but the show was absolutely amazing.
he did some funk stuff, a herbie tune, and a few straight ahead peices that were crazy. its insane to me how he can be swinging so deep and comping with his left hand and then just slide in downbeat for a couple bars. really spectacular. his chops were out of this world but jesus, that guy just ooozes music.
