Album Review

Perhaps aware of some creeping staleness in his records, Stanley Clarke brought in a lot of help and sailed in the general direction of the wave on Hideaway, but with only slightly improved results. George Howard, Angela Bofill, Herbie Hancock, Stewart Copeland (with whom Clarke would soon form Animal Logic), the newly emerged Stanley Jordan, and bass colleague Alphonso Johnson are some of the more recognizable names on board, and Clarke mans all of the instruments himself on the drum computer-driven "When It's Cold Outside." Some points of note: Stevie Wonder's "Overjoyed" gets a lush treatment augmented by Jordan's spidery guitar and Clare Fischer's string chart; "Old Friends" features the core of the School Days band and sounds fresher than its companions while allowing for some electronic updating of the style. ~ Richard S.

Customer Reviews


I have been searching for this particular album for almost 20 years. I bought it, of course, when it came out in '86 on audio tape...what else! My son and I listened to it "to death." Then I lost the tape. And I have been searching for it ever since. WELL! My search has come to an last. It took me a few hours perusing the internet, but I FINALLY found it and instantly bought it on iTunes. Next to George Duke, Stanley Clarke has got to be the "baddest" jazz musician to date, and this album is (if not his best), one of his best. I am a happy camper, now. I'm going to "GOOGLE" his tour dates and pray he's coming to my neck of the woods real soon!


As a long time S.Clarke fan, this is one of my favorites. It's so mellow on one hand, and so funky on the otherhand. And it's always good to hear Angela Bowfill. Love it!


Stanley Clarke is in the zone!!! From the heavily syncopated Riffs of "Johnson Street" and the Tenor Bass on "When It's Cold" to the more Pop sound of "Basketball" and the smooth melodies of "Hideaway" This album is a true winner and an absolute "MUST HAVE" of the very well established Clarke collection.

A brilliant player on both acoustic and electric basses, Stanley Clarke has spent much of his career outside of jazz, although he has the ability to play jazz with the very best. He played accordion as a youth, switching to violin and cello before settling on bass. He worked with R&B and rock bands in high school, but after moving to New York he worked with Pharoah Sanders in the early '70s. Other early gigs were with Gil Evans, Mel Lewis, Horace Silver, Stan Getz, Dexter Gordon, and Art Blakey;...
