Clarke's second album as a leader announced him as a true virtuoso of the electric bass. Though he first came to attention playing with such venerated jazzmen as Pharoah Sanders and Horace Silver, Clarke's own music was squarely in the fusion realm. His solo debut, CHILDREN OF FOREVER, alternated embryonic electric jazz with vocal-oriented tunes full of the cosmic/post flowerchild lyrics typical of the era. Here, Clarke limits the vocals to a single song, concentrating instead on a driving, syncopated sound that more closely echoes his pioneering work with Return To Forever.
His slapping, thumb-popping lines lead the funk charge, as high-energy, R&B-inflected fusion workouts mix with affecting acoustic ballads (Clarke is equally impressive on acoustic bass). Interacting with nimble synths and powerhouse drumming, Clarke's bass work is both rhythmically infectious and technically masterful. His subsequent recordings became progressively more commercial, but STANLEY CLARKE is the bassist's most satisfying artistic statement.
