A music review in the December issue of JazzTimes on the Scott Henderson/Jeff Berlin/ Dennis Chambers new CD,HBC on (Tone Center Records) One cut in particular that stands out in the review is Herbie Hancock's "Actual Proof." And how HBC interprets that song. Dig it on the serious side. If you want to get hip the the original. Then open up your ears to Mike Clark's performance on Hancock's album Thrust (1974), and particularly the song "Actual Proof", is often cited as one of the finest examples of the linear funk style of drumming. Mike Clark, Jeff Berlin and Tony Adamo have music coming out on Scott Elias's Random Act Records.
