Preview: Victor Wooten and the Stanley Clark Band
By: Anne Vickman
If you’re even remotely interested in bass playing, don’t read the rest of this entry. Just buy your ticket to Victor Wooten with the Stanley Clark Band at Royale this Thursday, March 24. For those of you who need a bit more convincing, just check out the video of Wooten playing “Classical Thump,” below. We promise Wooten no longer rocks a mustache or late-’80s pantaloons, but he did just release a remastered version of 1996’s A Show of Hands. Clark is nothing to sneeze at, either; the Philly-born musician has played with the likes of Stan Getz and Chick Corea, and was the first bassist both to headline tours and to have a certified gold album.
