Clifford Adams

While Clifford is well known to audiences for his long-time tenure with Kool & the Gang, his musical roots reside in the fertile soil of jazz. In 1973, Clifford, Mike Ray, and Larry Gittens were the horn section for The Stylistics world tour. Clifford embarked on a two-year stint with the world famous Thad Jones and Mel Lewis Big Band. After playing with Duke Ellington's Orchestra, then headed by Duke's son Mercer, Clifford toured Europe with Max Roach. This strong musical repertoire attracted Kool & the Gang in 1977, and it continues to delight contemporary audiences around the globe.
