THE HEADHUNTERS
Celebrate 50th Anniversary in 2023 and look ahead to new album and international touring in 2024
"Remarkably masterful, fresh-sounding, and creatively restless...For over 50 years, The Headhunters have continually reinvented themselves.” - ALL MUSIC
The Headhunters, the legendary jazz-funk ensemble co-led by percussionist Bill Summers and drummer Mike Clark with NEA Jazz Master Donald Harrison on alto saxophone, celebrate the band’s 50th anniversary in 2023, having formed around Herbie Hancock's classic recordings, Head Hunters, in 1973 and Thrust in 1974.
Few bands can boast a history as fortuitous and storied as The Headhunters. What each member brings to the table forged a history that most bands can only dream of. Their blend of jazz with funk and rock would go on to sell over a million albums worldwide, while the band's legacy would inspire musicians of every genre for years to come, be sampled by hundreds of hip-hop artists throughout the '80s and '90s, and influence countless musicians' playing today. The Headhunters' impact remains a global phenomenon, and their time with Hancock proved to be a life changing experience. The band has released 8 more albums stepping out on their own sans Hancock's involvement starting with Survival of the Fittest in 1975 and on Straight from the Gate in 1977 and most recently Speakers In the House in 2022 and Live From Brooklyn Bowl in 2023.
"What Bill and I and The Headhunters do is experience the moment and explore. We're not in a gym, this isn't a competition. This is art. The Headhunters is an act of passion, of love for humanity, and for our planet." - Mike Clark
"We live this every day. We have some secrets to give to the youth of the world. We’re not musicians, we are physicians. We heal people." - Bill Summers.
The current band consists of a top notch quintet with Clark, Summers and Harrison joined by bassist Chris Severin (Dr. John, Diana Krall, The Neville Brothers) and pianist Kyle Roussel (Preservation Hall Jazz Band), both staples on the New Orleans music scene. Managed by Greg Lucas and Craig Walker at Devil Hills Entertainment, the band is poised for success in 2024, having recorded a new album (and accompanying feature length documentary) at the legendary Hyde Street Studios in August 2023 and completed a sold out European tour in November 2023 including two nights at the London Jazz Festival.
