Nice post, and one of my favorite drummers of all time - but, sorry to be a pedant, but isn't that "Clark" without the 'e'?

Absolutely love the new album (yours) btw!

I love this groove. It's so funky, and it is not linear at all, despite Mike's association with that style. Just plain and simple groove....
