Mike Clark - While often referred to as the "Tony Williams of funk," Mike Clark considers jazz his first love. He gained worldwide recognition as one of America's foremost jazz and funk drummers while playing with Herbie Hancock in the early seventies. His incisive playing on Hancock's "Actual Proof" garnered him an international cult following and influenced generations of drummers. Mike has performed with such well-known jazz greats as Herbie Hancock, Christian McBride, Chet Baker, John Scofield, Nicholas Payton, Tony Bennett, Wayne Shorter, Joe Henderson, Eddie Henderson, Bobby Hutcherson, Vince Guaraldi, Woody Shaw, Donald Harrison, Albert King, Larry Coryell, Mike Wolff, Wallace Roney, Billy Childs, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Chris Potter, Bobby McFerrin, Nat Adderly, Oscar Brown Jr., and Gil Evans and his Orchestra.

James Genus - In baseball, "five-tool player" denotes excellence in every aspect of the game-running, throwing, fielding, hitting for average and power. It's an interesting way to think about the prodigious skills of bass master James Genus, a one-time catcher who eschewed the "tools of ignorance" for music a year before leaving high school. Consider the range of contexts that Genus is navigating during 2013. As electric bassist in the Saturday Night Live house band, his employer since 2000, he propels artists representing a 360-degree range of styles and genres. His pulsing grooves-interlocked with drummer Omar Hakim-animate dance-electronica hitmakers Daft Punk's chart-topping CD Random Access. With Herbie Hancock, he references an encyclopedic lexicon of harmony and beats on both electric and upright to complement the leader's anything-goes attitude. For much of this summer and fall he's showcasing his resonant tone and unfailingly melodic basslines on a world tour with Bob James and David Sanborn behind this year's Quartette Humaine, on which Genus performed with drum grandmaster Steve Gadd.

Dave Stryker - Whether you've heard guitarist Dave Stryker leading his own group (with 26 CD's as a leader to date), co-leading The Stryker/Slagle Band, or as a featured sideman with Stanley Turrentine, Jack McDuff, and many others, you know why the Village Voice calls him "one of the most distinctive guitarists to come along in recent years." Dave's new CD "Messin' with Mister T", is a celebration of the man he worked with for over a decade-Stanley Turrentine -with ten of the greatest tenor sax players on the scene today. It went to #1 on JazzWeek Radio and stayed in the Top 50 for 20 weeks and has received great reviews including 4 1/2 stars in Downbeat magazine, which picked it as one of the Top CD's of the year, ran a feature article on Dave, and recently voted him into the 2015 the DB Critics and Readers Poll for the 8th time.
