Stanley Clarke Biography (Wikipedia)
Stanley Clarke (born June 30, 1951) is an American bassist, film composer and founding member of Return to Forever, one of the first jazz fusion bands. Clarke gave the bass guitar a prominence it lacked in jazz-related music. He is the first jazz-fusion bassist to headline tours, sell out shows worldwide and have recordings reach gold status. He is one of the few bassists in history to double on the acoustic and electric bass with equal mastery. Clarke is a 4-time Grammy winner, and one of his electric basses is permanently on display at The Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C.
