Stanley Clarke - Tower Theater (1978) (mp3, 160kbps)

Here is an absolutely stellar recording of Stanley Clarke at the height of his powers, playing a show to a home town audience on New Year's Day. Could a fusion-head ask for anything better? I don't know who all we're hearing in the band, but I'm pretty sure it's Ray Gomez on guitar and Gerry Brown on drums. Beyond that, it's really anyone's guess. I know it's not David Sancious or Peter Robinson on keys because the piano solo is labeled as 'Mike's Solo'. Also, there are an assortment of horns and wind which make it a great set.

  1. Overture
  2. Silly Putty
  3. School Days
  4. Quiet Afternoon
  5. The Magician
  6. The Magician (cont'd)
  7. Song To John
  8. Confirmation
  9. Solo
  10. Dayride
  11. Mike Solo
  12. unknown
  13. Lopsy Lu

Thanks, Kurt. OK, so, you know, I had some accurate information, just not all of it. Count on Kurt to take it home. My man!
