"Organist Ken Clark and his trio – with guitarist Mike Mele and drummer Steve Chaggaris – have put together a series of recordings of fresh, funky grooves, with flavors of jazz distributed throughout. Their freshman effort – 2003’s Eternal Funk - is a series of unique grooves with neatly packaged arrangements testing the limits of the organ trio genre. You can’t call Eternal Funk a jazz album, and you can’t truly call it a funk album. It’s a living musical project with many, many influences." -Andy Schultz, host
