Jazz at the Rat featuring Mike Clark

Date: Thursday, October 24, 2013
Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Building: Lavin-Bernick Center (LBC), Der Rathskeller (ground level)
Location: uptown campus

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. He first became known as a major innovator through his incisive playing on Hancock’s Thrust album, and Hancock once remarked, "the solo he played on Actual Proof is one of the best drum solos on any of my albums." Next to James Brown's drummer Clyde Stubblefield, Clark's beats with The Headhunters (most notably on "God Make Me Funky") are some of the most sampled in hip hop. 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 Chet Baker, Tony Bennett, Wayne Shorter, Christian McBride, Bobby Hutcherson, Al Jarreau, and many more.

Jazz at the Rat is a series of live concerts held on selected Thursday evenings at Der Rathskeller (a.k.a. "The Rat") at Tulane. Curated by Jesse McBride, the series features performances by jazz legends and rising stars, comprising of both visiting artists and outstanding New Orleans-based musicians, accompanied by students and faculty from Tulane's Jazz Studies program. Free and open to the public.
