Taking Larry Graham's thumpin' and pluckin' and refining it to his own style, Stanley Clarke is another pioneering slap bassist who started out providing the low end for Art Blakey, Gil Evans, Horace Silver and Stan Getz among others.
It was his groundbreaking fusion work with Chick Corea’s Return To Forever that gained him widespread acclaim, though, before releasing the seminal solo bass album School Days.
Check out Silly Putty from Stanley's 1975 solo album Journey To Love for a prime example of his percussive, rubbery, funk slap style.
