The Stanley Clarke Band: No Mystery, Live

Today we’re celebrating the great Stanley Clarke’s birthday with a killer clip of his band live at Bimhuis in Amsterdam. The jazz legend and crew tackle the Return to Forever song “No Mystery”, which Clarke also released on his band’s 2010 self-titled album.

Clarke pulls out all the stops with his signature bass lines, arco work, and a jaw-dropping percussive solo. The rest of the band includes Beka Gochiashvili on piano, Cameron Graves on keyboard, and Michael Mitchell on drums.

Happy birthday, Stanley Clarke!
