New York City, NY





The famed Headhunters jazz/fusion/funk
band (once-backing members for Herbie Hancock), are recording with singer and
hip/spoken word artist, Tony Adamo in October.  Rob
Dixon
and Gary Mielke, the co-producers of the Headhunters new
CD, PLATINUM on Indianapolis based label Owl
Studios
, along with legendary funk drummer and Headhunters
member Mike Clark, will co-produce Adamo’s new CD.  Clark, who has played on two of Adamo’s previous
releases, STRAIGHT UP DEAL and WHAT IS HIP? has added master percussionist and
long time Headhunter member, Bill Summers to record new tracks for Adamo’s CD.  



This won’t be the first
time the Headhunters have brought some kool struttin’ and soul funkin’ to Adamo’s
music.  On his “WHAT IS HIP? CD, Mike
Clark (drums), Bill Summers (percussion) and new Headhunter, Richie Goods
(bass) cooked up a new soul groove for Adamo’s retooling of the Tower of Power
hit, “What is Hip?” along with Tower of Power co-founder Stephen “Doc” Kupka.
They fused an insatiable groove that is interwoven throughout this funk/jazz/
and hip/spoken word mash up of a song. The funky “Doc’s” iconic horn playing
will be added to Adamo’s new CD at a later date to anchor the horn section
headed up by Headhunter member Rob Dixon (soprano/alto/tenor sax and keyboards). Tony Adamo is a Strokeland record artist. Doc
Kupka is the founder and owner of Strokeland records.
