So I’ve been on a jazz kick recently…Here’s Stanley Clarke.


I used to listen to some jazz when I was a kid mainly because my mom would usually have the jazz station on (RIP WNUA 95.5) whenever she would drive me somewhere. I had a long hiatus of sorts during my teens as I listened to a bunch of indie rock, metal, J-pop and punk during my teens and early college years. My tastes have certainly changed since then as I’ve been getting into avant-garde stuff, African music, funk and back into jazz.

I’ve been listening to the classics and more modern stuff with composers, bands, and organ trios of all things.

Wow was I not aware of Stanley Clarke back then?

I randomly looked for bass solos on YouTube and found this video of this legendary bass player just tearing it up with an upright bass. This blew my mind and I listened to some of his discography and his superband SMV with Marcus Miller and Victor Wooten.

It’s been awesome getting into jazz again. Maybe I can improve as a musician to play some of that kind of music.
