Presented by the Prince & AEG Live
Accompanied by The Harlem Quartet
Bass virtuoso & Philly-native Stanley Clarke brings his trio to the Prince Saturday, January 11th. The one-night-only performance will feature the Stanley Clarke Trio accompanied onstage by The Harlem Quartet. This will mark the first time Stanley performs with the Harlem Quartet in Philadelphia.
Four-time Grammy Award Winner Stanley Clarke has attained “living legend” status during his over 40-year career as a bass virtuoso. He is the first bassist in history who doubles on acoustic and electric bass with equal ferocity and the first bassist ever to headline tours, selling out shows worldwide. A veteran of over 40 albums, Clarke co-founded the seminal fusion group Return to Forever with Chick Corea and Lenny White.
Born in Philadelphia, Clarke 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. That accomplishment gave way to a number of extremely successful solo albums for Clarke. Along the way, 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, and has shared the stage with Bob Marley and Miles Davis.
Clarke believes in giving back to help young musicians hone their skills. He and his wife Sofia established The Stanley Clarke Foundation thirteen years ago as a charitable organization, which offers scholarships to talented young musicians each year.
