Stanley Clarke to tour UK for the first time

The Grammy winning bass legend has five shows nationwide next week

Grammy winning bass player, composer and arranger Stanley Clarke is set to fully tour the UK for the first time. Clarke, 66, rose to fame in the early 70’s working with Horace Silver, Art Blakey, Dave Brubeck and Chick Corea - who invited him into the famous fusion group Return to Forever. He also had chart success with his George Duke and Howard Hewitt collaborations. Clarke is well known to bass players for pioneering his right-angled finger position which created a unique slap-bass sound.
