Over the course of a musical career lasting more than 45 years, four-time Grammy Award winner Stanley Clarke has acquired the status of a legendary virtuoso on the bass guitar. He is the first bassist in history to double on acoustic and electric bass with equal ferocity, and the first jazz fusion bassist ever to headline tours. His boundless creativity and sold-out concerts around the world have made him such a popular figure that he has even appeared on magazine covers. He has released more than 40 albums. Together with pianist Chick Corea and drummer Lenny White, he was part of the influential jazz fusion band Return To Forever, who changed the history of music alongside fellow travellers Weather Report and Mahavishnu Orchestra. Return To Forever’s first appearance in Ljubljana was a sold-out concert at Tivoli Hall back in February 1975. Chick Corea, Lenny White and Stanley Clarke returned to Slovenia in 2009 and performed at Cankarjev Dom. Stanley Clarke is also an accomplished film and television composer, with credits on more than 65 projects including the following films: Boyz N The Hood (1991), the Tina Turner biopic What’s Love Got To Do With It (1993), Romeo Must Die (2000), The Transporter (2002), Best Man Holiday (2013) and the box office hit Barbershop: The Next Cut (2016). He has garnered three Emmy nominations and a BMI Award for his scores. In 2014 he accepted an invitation to become a member of the exclusive Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences. He has worked with many giants of jazz, including Quincy Jones, Joe Henderson, Pharoah Sanders, Stan Getz, Dexter Gordon, Art Blakey, Gil Evans, Horace Silver, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Jean-Luc Ponty, George Duke, Tony Williams and Jan Hammer, and icons of popular music such as Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Paul McCartney, Chaka Khan, Jeff Beck, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood. He has shared a stage with both Bob Marley and Miles Davis. This will be his first appearance in Slovenia with his own band.
