Four decades after redefining the role of the electric bass with the seminal fusion group Return to Forever, Clarke has embraced the role of musical man for all seasons.
In the truest sense of the word, Stanley Clarke is a legend.
With over 40 albums, four-time Grammy Award–winner and bassist Stanley Clarke has attained “living legend” status. Clarke has been a constant force of nature in American music since the early 1970s with the success of the jazz-fusion group Return to Forever. During his career of more than 45 years, he has collaborated with Quincy Jones, Stan Getz, Art Blakey, Paul McCartney, Jeff Beck, Keith Richards, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, the Police, Herbie Hancock, and many more. Doubling on acoustic and electric bass with equal ferocity, Clarke was the first jazz-fusion bassist ever to headline tours, selling out shows worldwide. Known for his intense dexterity and consummate musicality, Clarke is a true pioneer in jazz and jazz fusion.
