Tony Adamo and the legendary Headhunters
Members of the legendary Headhunters who backed Herbie Hancock on several recordings have cooked up a new soul groove for Tony Adamo’s remake of the Tower of Power hit, “What is Hip.” Original members Mike Clark (drums), Bill Summers, (percussion) and new Headhunter, Richie Goods (bass) form an insatiable groove that is interwoven throughout this funk/jazz hip/spoken word mash up of a song. Jerry Stucker, who produced and plays guitar on Adamo’s cover of “What is Hip,” is credited with contributing to the new Headhunter release PLATINUM, due out in the middle of June on Owl Studios Records.
The Headhunters where the supporting band for Herbie Hancock’s studio album, HEADHUNTERS which became one of the best selling jazz/funk recordings ever. The Headhunters band with Mike Clark replacing Harvey Mason (drums), worked with Hancock on a number of other albums, including, THRUST, MANCHILD, FLOOD, SECRETS and SUNLIGHT. Singer Tony Adamo is a Strokeland Record artist. Strokeland is owned by Stephen ‘Doc’ Kupka, co-founder of the super funk horn band Tower of Power. Get ready for the new Headhunter CD, PLATINUM, and get hip to the infectious slice of funk and boogie beats on Tony Adamo’s regroove of Tower’s “What is Hip.”
