FOUR-STRING GURU

STANLEY CLARKE Bass king Stanley Clarke first showed up on the jazz scene playing deft, upright bass licks with artists like Pharaoh Sanders and Gato Barbieri. Starting in the ’70s, Clarke helped pioneer the fusion movement, slapping and plucking his signature Alembic bass and upright as a leader and with Return to Forever, while finding time to score a hit with “School Days” and jamming with Keith Richards in the New Barbarians. Whether as solo artist, in-demand soundtrack composer, producer or sideman, Clarke always delivers his revolutionary licks, style and taste. 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 2, Ponte Vedra Concert Hall, $53-$63, pvconcerthall.com.
