SMV: The Thunder Tour Strikes Nokia Theatre Times Square Tomorrow

event-22400-28-04022009-0The mighty all-bass trio of Stanley Clarke, Marcus Miller and Victor Wooten is set to send down an electrifying performance at Nokia Theatre Times Square this Friday, June 12.

The unique alliance of three generations of bass gods has been on chat room and fan gathering wish lists for over 15 years. Finally in 2007, with Clarke set to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award from Bass Player magazine, at its annual Bass Player Live! event in New York City, Miller and Wooten made the time to attend and induct their mentor. The ensuing jam not only blew the minds of the 900 in attendance, it cemented for the trio their inherent musical chemistry and thus the viability of pursuing the project in earnest. As a result, in January 2008, SMV entered the studio to record a CD and put together a summer/fall tour.

Clarke sums up, “Considering we’re three guys playing the same instrument, it’s going to be a real revelation for folks. You’ll hear the electric bass in particular with some whole other possibilities. It’s a great new day for the bass.”
