Stanley Clarke and Hiromi
Two GRAMMYⓇ winning jazz greats are pairing up for a not-to-be-missed night of music. Four-time GRAMMYⓇ Award-winning bassist, recording artist, and composer, Stanley Clarke partners with BroadStage in a three-year relationship as Artist in Residence. To launch the first season of this residency, Clarke and bursting-with-energy jazz pianist Hiromi will join forces for a show that is sure to have you dancing in your seat.
Clarke is one of the most celebrated as well as influential acoustic and electric bass players in the world. Hiromi is known for her virtuosic technique, energetic live performances, and blending of musical genres such as stride, post-bop, progressive rock, classical and fusion in her compositions. Clarke and Hiromi have recorded and performed in the past. They won a GRAMMYⓇ Award for Best Contemporary Jazz Album, The Stanley Clarke Band, featuring pianist Hiromi. They also recorded 2009’s Jazz in the Garden with drummer Lenny White. The duet has most recently performed at the London Palladium.
