Stanley Clarke: the face of the bass
Stanley Clarke is still taking the bass to another place. Musically, he’s put the bass on top. Checking out his recordings again last night and couldn’t help smile at his sense of humor, usually expressed through virtuosity, or his sense of musical ddrama and, yes, speed. 5 hours of the finest in recorded jazz here, under Jazz From Blue Lake: www.bluelake.org/ondemand
I am honored to be performing at this year’s Grammys in tribute to the great Dave Brubeck with my friends Chick Corea and Kenny Garrett. Tune in and check it out!!!
