Guitarist Jack Wilkins has been on the International jazz scene since the early 1970's. A native of Brooklyn, Jack began playing guitar at age thirteen. “Windows”, his first album as a leader (Mainstream, 1973), has been critically acclaimed as a dazzling, seminal guitar trio work. Mike Clark gained worldwide recognition as one of America’s foremost jazz and funk drummers while playing with Herbie Hancock in the early seventies. His incisive playing on Hancock’s “Actual Proof” garnered him an international cult following and influenced generations of drummers. Essiet Okon Essiet first received critical acclaim more than a decade ago as a member of saxophonist Bobby Watson's post-hard bop group Horizon.
