Stanley Clarke is the star of the electric bass in jazz and jazz-rock 
going back more than 40 years now. And his fondness for instruments, especially those made by the northern California company Alembic, has sometimes gotten out of hand. “Yeah, over the years I’ve had so many basses,” he said in a recent interview. “I had to almost like have another house for them, but I’ve sold or given some of them away now.”

Although he plans to spend some time onstage with his acoustic double bass when the Stanley Clarke Band plays the Lensic Performing Arts Center on Sunday, July 21, he will have at least a couple of his electric instruments with him. He and his band mates — Zach Brock on violin, John Beasley on keyboards, and drummer Michael Mitchell — will perform versions of older songs like “No Mystery” as well as newer pieces.
