Just out of his teens, the phenomenal bassist Stanley Clarke was snapped up as a sideman by such jazz luminaries as Horace Silver, Art Blakey, Stan Getz, and Curtis Fuller. His groundbreaking work with Chick Corea in Return to Forever brought Stanley international renown, and paved the way for his collaborations with pop artists such as Stewart Copeland, Jeff Beck, and Ron Wood. A prolific composer—Emmy-nominated for his work on Pee Wee’s Playhouse—in his spare time Stanley also designs basses and runs a non-profit educational foundation. This special trio performance will no doubt showcase Stanley’s bass virtuosity.
