Stanley Clarke is an American bassist, composer and founding member of Return to Forever, one of the first jazz fusion bands. He is the first jazz-fusion bassist to headline tours, sell out shows worldwide and have recordings reach gold status
For more than fifty years, he has operated freely in the upper echelons of jazz, fusion, funk, rock and R&B genres. As a teenager, he formed Return to Forever with the pianist Chick Corea, a band that developed fusion music side by side with John McLaughlin’s Mahavishnu Orchestra, Weather Report and Miles Davis.

About the Lena Ringstad
Lena Ringstad has created a unique industry out of capturing men and women at work – specifically behind-the-scenes session musicians, the backbone of mega-hit records and world tours of the stars.
The exhibition features photographs from Lena’s 25-year photographical journey in Los Angeles, where she worked with music legends and sidemen to legends like Chaka Khan, Stevie Wonder, Sting, the Pointer Sisters, David Bowie, Al Jarreau, James Ingram, Keb’ Mo’, Leon Ware, and more.
As one of very few women covering this exclusive niche, Lena provides an intimate bird’s eye view of Los Angeles based musicians, quiet-kept history-makers deserving of broader attention and acclaim.
She has captured recording sessions, sound-checks, concerts, rehearsals, and the camaraderie exhibited at inner circle events.
