One of the best Bass players in the world.

optikeye: One of the best Bass players in the world.


He really is something to watch. His reach is incredible. Also a sweetheart of a guy. As much as I like him on his Alembic his touch on a double bass is second to none.

"Lower register"? Well, when he bothered to play there. Most of his more famous work was on piccolo bass.

Love, love, LOVE Stanley.  Even when he skipped off to the side to do that gig in Animal Logic, he could do no wrong.  Happy Birthday you cool hawt jazz daddy.

Great bassist. Saw him with Vic Wooten and Marcus Miller a couple years back. Phenomenal stuff.

Happy birthday, big guy. You turned a young punk rocker/metal head into a jazz fan about 20 years ago. Thank you.

Yeah....I call B.S. on "lower register"

His bass playing sounds more like a banjo to me.
Lightest gauge strings possible. bass all the way down, treble all the way up. He uses these tiny speakers on his bass amp.

When he performs he often brings an ACTUAL bass player to cover the low while he brightly twangs away.

I will reserve "Lord" of the lower register for real bass players like Entwistle and Jamerson.

Geezer
Jack Bruce
........etc.......

Bass that hits you in the chest.

I remember first hearing "School Days" when my, then 13 year old, bass player learned it. Changed my life.

My favorite is Jack Cassidy. I think Stanley gets a lot of guitar player fans because of his sound. To hear him on a double all down low though... it takes your breath away. Wooten's pretty good at carrying the bottom and those two together is a double treat.

I wonder who gave him the title. They've been calling him that for ever.

I've never heard him called that, but then again it's been about 30 years since I bought one of his solo albums.

I first heard it in NY when I was a kid. It was in the press for the Roxboro launch too. Some of the new stuff is just incredible jazz. He plays with some amazing musicians too, Hiromi, Bruner, Sirota, stunning players.

I got turned on to Return to Forever at that same age. At first I didn't even know I was listening to bass. IIRC it was the Romantic Warrior album. Changed mine as well. It allowed me to open my ears more and find so much joy in listening to different genres of music.

Bane of Broone:

great album. The record store where I went had only one bin for jazz. I just started buying anything that showed up there. I found so many of my core influences in that store. Something about being able to pick anything in the bin and have it be a sweet surprise.
