Description

Legendary bassist Stanley Clarke considers 'UP', to be the most energetic, rhythmic and upbeat album that he has ever done and with more than forty solo albums under his belt, that's saying quite a lot.

Stanley's signature bass virtuosity and technical acumen is present throughout, but the enjoyment he had in making this album is also apparent. Unlike his predominant acoustic bass work on the last few albums, 'UP' is almost equal electric and acoustic bass.

It includes newly recorded versions of "Scool Days" and "Brazilian Love Afair", guests include Stewart Copeland, Chick Corea, Joe Walsh, Gerry Brown and others.

Stanley Clarke has attained "living legend" status and 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 45+ year career, 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.
