Recording artist, performer, composer, conductor, arranger, producer and film score composer, Stanley Clarke is one of the most celebrated bass players in the world. Known for his ferocious dexterity and consummate musicality, Clarke is a true musical pioneer. Unquestionably, he has attained “living legend” status during his 36-year career as a bass virtuoso.

When Clarke, with Chick Corea, formed the seminal electric jazz/fusion band Return To Forever, he pushed the bass as a viable, melodic solo instrument positioned at the front of the stage rather than in a background role. RTF was a crucible for each of the quartet’s strong musical personalities, composing prowess and instrumental voices and influenced a generation of musicians from both sides of the rock/jazz fence.

Solo, Clarke became the first bassist in history to headline tours, sell out shows worldwide, and craft albums that achieved gold status. He was the first bassist in history to double on acoustic and electric bass with equal virtuosity, power and fire. In his ongoing efforts to push the bass to new limits, he has invented two new instruments, the piccolo bass and the tenor bass. Both of these instruments have enabled Clarke to extend his melodic range to higher and more expressive registers and extend the range of his music exponentially.

 MCG Jazz' concert hall seats 350 patrons in standard theatre seats and an additional 32 patrons in chairs that are added in the back. When viewing the seating chart, please note that these added chairs are represented by rows P and Q.

The stage is in front of row A and is at the bottom of the seating chart when viewed online. There is a walkway of about four feet between the stage and the first row and the stage is raised off of the ground by about four feet. The auditorium is raked, so that each row is slightly above the row in front of it.

Also, when viewing the map, please be advised that it appears to be reversed. Seat one in each row is on the center aisle. The highest number in each row is closest to the outside wall. There is an aisle between the last seat in each row and the wall.
