Stanley Clarke & George Duke Duo
FEATURING:
Stanley Clarke, bass
George Duke, keys

Bassist Stanley Clarke teamed up with keyboardist George Duke in 1981 to form the Clarke/Duke Project, scoring a Top 20 pop hit with the single Sweet Baby. Over the course of their funk-filled and genre-smashing collaborations, including three albums, the two have created performances full of fun, energy, and exceptional musicianship, with a big bottom and keyboard flights of fancy. More of the same fantastic musical roller-coaster ride is on the way in the 2012 Blue Note Jazz Festival with the new Clarke/Duke 4 Bring It Tour. Its been six years since Clarke and Duke toured together, and both are excited to hit the road together again. Im looking forward to these performances, because the most fun I have touring is with George. We have a good time together, remarked Clarke. Duke concurred: Touring with Stanley is always a good thing, because hes a nut. Hes the younger brother I never had. Dont miss these two musical legends performing the unique blend of jazz fusion they helped pioneer almost 40 years ago.



Multi-Grammy Award-winning bassist Stanley Clarke became the first bassist in history who could double on acoustic and electric bass with equal ferocity and the first bassist ever to headline tours, selling out shows worldwide. A veteran of over 40 albums, he won the 2011 Best Contemporary Jazz Album Grammy for his album The Stanley Clarke Band. Clarke co-founded the seminal fusion group Return to Forever with Chick Corea and Lenny White. This year Return to Forever won a Grammy Award for Best Jazz Instrumental Album for the disc Forever (2011). Clarke has collaborated with Quincy Jones, Stan Getz, Art Blakey, Paul McCartney, and Keith Richards, to name a few. An accomplished film and TV composer of over 60 projects, his credits include Boyz n the Hood (1991), the Tina Turner biopic Whats Love Got to Do with It (1993), Romeo Must Die (2000), and The Transporter (2002). He has garnered three Emmy Nominations and a BMI Award for his scoring.

Keyboardist and vocalist George Duke, also a multi-Grammy Award winner, has worked with a whos who of musical greats, including Cannonball Adderley, Anita Baker, Miles Davis, Al Jarreau, and Dianne Reeves. One of the foremost keyboard pioneers, he helped usher in the 70s fusion revolution with his work with Jean Luc Ponty and Frank Zappa. Through the years, along with his 30 solo projects and busy producing schedule, Duke has acted as musical director for numerous artists and television specials, including the Soul Train Music Awards and NBCs Sunday Night Show.
