School Days Full:Album:Stanley Clarke
American bassist, film composer and founding member of Return to Forever
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.

Clarke is a 5-time Grammy winner, with 15 nominations, 3 as a solo artist, 1 with the Stanley Clarke Band, and 1 with Return to Forever.

A Stanley Clarke electric bass is permanently on display at The Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C.
"School Days" is a masterpiece of jazz, funk, & rock. Not unlike his work with the fusion great, Return to Forever, which Stanley was a long time member, & contributed heavily in writing. The man just does amazing things with his bass, whether it be electric, upright, acoustic bass, or piccolo bass, the man is a true wizard of blurring fingers, phrasing, yes, phrasing, & thumping funky monster bass! Yet he can be as delicate a harp player, gently, yet soulfully, plucking beautiful sounds from his muse to his bass through his hands.

                                                                               School bells are ringing loud and clear; vacation’s over, school is here.
                                                                                                                                                       Winifred C. Marshal
