O’s Notes: Drummer Mike Clark plays with a level of intensity that has impressed critics since his association with Herbie Hancock’s Headhunters band of the mid-1970’s. He has become even more seasoned as a leader and assembled a fine band with Donald Harrison (sax), Jed Levy (sax), Patrice Rushen (p), Christian Scott (t) and bassist Christian McBride. They open up cooking on “In The House” and cruise through nine more tracks without losing your attention. Highlights include “I Want To Talk About You”, “Conchita’s Dance” and “Loft Funk”.
