“Surrounding myself with people I enjoy being with made the sessions effortless. Everyone came prepared and ready to play,” Clarke says. “All were great musicians and they came to the studio to give everything they had.” […]

about
UP is by no means as mind-blowing as Stanley Clarke (Nemperor, 1974) or as seminal as School Days (Nemperor, 1976), but it seems that was never his intention. Rather than making a grand statement, Clarke instead chose to find some friends, put together some charts and drop a record that was all about having fun and enjoying the process. The result does nothing to hurt his reputation but does little to inspire a rave review, either. […]
