The Broad Stage
1310 11th St, Santa Monica, CA 90401
The fast-fingered Stanley Clarke -- jazz bassist, composer and producer -- brings his band of exciting young musicians to the Broad Stage in Santa Monica just before heading off on a European tour and just after playing the Detroit Jazz Festival. Equally virtuosic on electric and acoustic versions of his instrument, Clarke's a long-time innovator who's composed for film and TV and won tons of awards, including four Grammys and "Rolling Stone"'s very first Jazzman of the Year. Plus, he's jammed in bands or on records with just about everybody, from Chick Corea, Ronnie Wood and Stewart Copeland to Esperanza Spalding, Michael Jackson and Beck, and way beyond.
