Daily best music in the world: Headhunters

A complete set by Herbie Hancock's Headhunters, with Mike Clark on drums, recorded in 1974. For most of the time I've been a drummer, there was no opportunity to see things like this— actually the first time I ever saw Mike Clark play in any capacity play was when my band opened for this group at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland in 2000. That tour was the first time they had played in 25 years. So we're very lucky as drummers to have documents like this now. If you've been spending any time with my Funk Control/Basic Funk Ideas series, you'll definitely want to see this, to see those ideas in action.
