Four-time Grammy Award Winner Stanley Clarke has attained “living legend” status during his over 40-year career as a bass virtuoso. He is the first bassist in history who doubles on acoustic and electric bass with equal ferocity and the first jazz-fusion bassist ever to headline tours, selling out shows worldwide. A veteran of over 40 albums, he won the 2011 Best Contemporary Jazz Album Grammy Award for The Stanley Clarke Band. Clarke co-founded the seminal fusion group Return to Forever with Chick Corea and Lenny W. In 2012 Return to Forever won a Grammy Award and Latin Grammy for Best Jazz Instrumental Album, Forever.

Clarke’s eagerly awaited new CD, The Message, will be released on Mack Avenue Records June 29, 2018. Clarke considers the new album “funky, melodic, musical, contemporary and fresh with a rich multi-genre influence.” Including compositions from his band members, Beka Gochiashvili, Mike Mitchel and Cameron Graves, the album swells with an abundance of strength, soul and astounding musicianship. Guest artists, rapper/beatboxer Doug E. Fresh, trumpeter Mark Isham and saxophonist Doug Webb as well as Steve Blum and vocalists Skeyler Kole and Trevor Wesley, also join Clarke on the new album.
