Additional Details

"School Days" was a game changer for the legendary Stanley Clarke in many ways. Not only did it forever etch the title superstar musician to his name all over the world, it also crossed his incredible music over to a whole new level of listeners, which to this day continue to flock to this album for the solid funk, rock, jazz and fusion release that only this master jam could achieve.

After a very successful run with Chick Corea’s Return To Forever, world class bassist and multi-instrumentalist Stanley Clarke branched out on his own and made some very credible solo albums.

When "School Days" hit in late 1976, it was not uncommon to hear tracks like "Hot Fun" and "School Days" being played on all formats of radio. Whether it be urban, rock, or jazz, the "School Days" album was the go to album of choice for many radio stations, as its rhythms and cosmic funk / rock / jazz energy would truly enhance the listening experience to a whole new realm.

For this star studded affair, Stanley Clarke reached out to some of the greatest musicians of all time like John McLauglin, George Duke, Billy Cobham, Chick Corea, Steve Gadd, Icarus Johnson, and many others.

Not only do you get the wonderful songs previously mentioned, but there are even more classics like "Quiet Afternoon" with some very solid drumming by Steve Gadd, "Desert Song" featuring a stunning duet with John McLauglin on guitar, as well as the apocalyptic album closer "Life Is Just A Game", which features some very powerful bass and drum fireworks between Stanley Clarke and Billy Cobham, with George Duke’s amazing keyboard expertise.
