Well here it is, the last installment of our awesome interview. I had so much fun! What a thrill it was to play with Stanley Clarke, and his musical advice is second to none.  Before we get to the interview, I would like to take a moment to congratulate the entire Stanley Clarke Band for their Grammy win: Best Contemporary Jazz Album of the year! Couldn’t have happened to a nicer bunch of people. They worked hard, they played well and they won.  Without further ado, here is the last segment of an amazing interview with the Grammy-winning – and very gracious – Stanley Clarke.

Don’t miss Part One and Part Two! Here is a link to our Entire BFMN Stanley Clarke Collection which will be updated to contain the interview and videos from the launch party.

Stanley Clarke talks with BFMN's Dan Grigor

Well, after much hair-pulling and hardware issues, here, finally, is Part One of our video interview series on the extraordinary bassist Stanley Clarke.

It’s funny how things happen. We were originally supposed to meet with Stanley Clarke at NAMM. The interview would likely have been a cattle call with guys like me, one after the other, asking the same questions and all ending up with somewhat dry footage of talking heads with the impossibly loud convention going on in the background.

We had missed Stanley Clarke at NAMM. He was kind enough to invite us out to the studio to talk. We jammed a bit on the couch and talk about his new label Roxboro Entertainment Group. We have a song, we have a great interview and great pics to follow.

Playing Star Again, Turn The Page

Many of the articles I write have to do with bettering your economic status as musicians. You can actually make money playing music, and of course, once you are discovered, once you have “made it,” once you’re a star, well, then you will never have to worry about money again. Right?

Don’t hold your breath. Odds are that you won’t get discovered; I’m pretty sure you’re not going to make it; and, if the truth be known, you have a lot better chance of winning the lottery than you have of being a star.
