Stanley Clarke

Stanley Clarke School Days LP

Even as a kid, I felt that jazz bassists were the best.

Stanley Clarke was always at the top of my favorite players’ list.

Not just for his technical skill, but for getting a great groove.

I was never all that great at slapping, like him or Larry Graham.

I always used that technique sparingly, as an accent.

But, Jaco Pastorius never slapped and he is considered one of the best jazz bassists of all time.

So, there is some consolation in that, for me.
