Four-time Grammy™ winner Stanley Clarke is quite possibly the most celebrated acoustic and electric bassist in the world. As a performer, composer, conductor, arranger, recording artist, producer, and film scorer known for his ferocious dexterity and consummate musicality, Clarke is a true pioneer in jazz and of the bass itself. Unquestionably he is a “living legend,” lauded with every conceivable award available to a musician in his over 40-year career as a bass virtuoso.

Clarke’s incredible proficiency has been rewarded with: four Grammys, gold and platinum records, Emmy nominations, an honorary Doctorate from Philadelphia’s University of the Arts, and much more. He was Rolling Stone’s very first Jazzman of the Year and bassist winner of Playboy’s Music Award for ten straight years. Clarke was honored with Bass Player Magazine’s Lifetime Achievement Award and is a member of Guitar Player Magazine’s “Gallery of Greats.” In 1999, Clarke put his hands in cement as an inductee into Hollywood’s “Rock Walk” on Sunset Boulevard. In more recent years, in 2011 he was honored with the highly prestigious, Miles Davis Award, at the Montreal Jazz Festival for his entire body of work. He was even honored with the key to the city of Philadelphia. Most recently, Clarke won the 2013 Downbeat Magazine’s Reader’s and Critic’s Poll for Best Electric Bass Player. Read more…
