Stanley Clarke Live at the Cedar Cultural Center February 27, 2014 Minneapolis Minnesota- School Days Tour

Here is some pictures and video I took last night of Stanley Clarke at the Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis Minnesota (February 27, 2014). I had the extraordinary pleasure of a front row seat to see Stanley Clarke at the Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis MN. Stanley is an enormous talent, and he blew the audience away with his virtuosity on upright and electric bass. I have been a huge Stanley Clarke fan since I was a teenager, and I play bass in part because of his influence, so this was a treat for me.  – Lance
Stanley’s current tour is called the School Days tour, because the show consists mostly of songs from his 1976 album, School Days. It was his first album to cross over into the pop charts and enter the top 40.

Here was the play list from last night (not sure about exact order between School Days and No Mystery):

1.      School Days (School Days album 1976)

2.      Quiet Afternoon (School Days album 1976)

3.      Lopsy Lu (Stanley Clarke album 1974)

4.      The Dancer (School Days album 1976)

5.      Song to John Parts 1 & 2  (Journey to Love album 1975)

6.      Desert (School Days album 1976)

7.      No Mystery (from the Return to Forever album No Mystery 1975) 


Hot Fun (School Days album 1976)
