An Evening With Stanley Clarke

Stanley Clarke is a GRAMMY-Award winning recording artist and notably the first bassist to headline tours, sell out concerts worldwide and craft gold-status albums. By the age of 25, he was already being regarded as a pioneer of the jazz-fusion movement, having recorded with artists such as Art Blakey, Horace Silver, Gil Evans and Stan Getz. Most recently a recipient of 2011 and 2012 GRAMMY Awards for his work, Stanley Clarke has been a constant force of nature in American music since the early 1970s with the success of this band Return To Forever. Along with multiple GRAMMY Awards, his music boasts honors such as the Rolling Stone’s first Jazzman of the Year, bassist winner of Playboy’s Music Award for 10 straight years, as well as the prestigious Miles Davis Award. In addition, Clarke is an accomplished film and TV composer of over 60 projects. His credits include Boyz N The Hood, the Tina Turner biopic What’s Love Got To Do With It, Romeo Must Die and The Transporter, just to name a few.
