The Stanley Clarke Band f/Hiromi at Toronto Jazz Festival tonight
Tonight I am going to see The Stanley Clarke Band at the Mainstage at City Hall as part of the Toronto Jazz festival. Again this year Clarke is touring with the fabulous pianist Hiromi Uehara. Last year they toured with Lenny White. This year the have a brand new CD released two weeks ago featuring drummer Ronald Bruner Jr. and pianist Ruslan Sirota. Clarke says he loves working with Hiromi and both are on Heads Up Records. Here's a recent video of the band. I can't wait to see Hiromi and her lightning fast fingers and I will review the concert tomorrow.
