Four-time Grammy Award Winner and bass virtuoso Stanley Clarke is coming to the Paramount Hudson Valley Theater!
A veteran of over 40 albums, he won the 2011 Best Contemporary Jazz Album Grammy Award for The Stanley Clarke Band. Clarke co-founded the seminal fusion group Return to Forever with Chick Corea and Lenny White. In 2012 Return to Forever won a Grammy Award and Latin Grammy for Best Jazz Instrumental Album, Forever.
Clarke’s creativity has been recognized and rewarded in every way: gold and platinum records, Grammy Awards, Emmy nominations, virtually every readers and critics poll in existence, and more. He was Rolling Stone’s very first Jazzman of the Year and bassist winner of Playboy’s Music Award for ten straight years.
Born in Philadelphia, Clarke has been a constant force of nature in American music since the early 1970s with the success of 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, Art Blakey, Paul McCartney, Jeff Beck, Keith Richards, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, The Police, and many more, and has shared the stage with Bob Marley and Miles Davis.
An accomplished film and TV composer of over 65 projects, his credits include Boyz N The Hood, the Tina Turner biopic What’s Love Got To Do With It, Romeo Must Die, The Transporter and most recently the 2013 blockbuster, Best Man Holiday. He has garnered three Emmy Nominations and a BMI Award for his scoring.
