Watch this video with two music legends: guitar player Larry Coryell together with bass player Stanley Clark performing a song called School Days. The performance was recorded during the World Exposition 1992 in Sevilla, Spain.
The song School Days is a composition of Stanley Clark who has played it in almost all of his concerts but here it is still sounding very fresh. Larry Coryell has played with many famous musicians from the jazz and fusion scene and obtained mayor popularity when touring with John McLaughlin and Paco de Lucia, the great flamenco guitar player. This video clip also shows Dennis Chambers on drums and George Duke on Keyboards.
Many people, specially the younger ones, thing that Larry Coryell is playing without soul, I hpoe this video helps to correct this image. However, as Stanley Clark announces at the beginning of the video clip, this is the first time the two musicians play this song together. Another detail is the low volume of the bass guitar, it could have been mastered in a better way but as we always say: Don’t let the low recording quality keep you away from the musical essence. Would you say that people who listened to the first recordings of Louie Armstrong or other musicians of the era before digital sound processing couldn’t enjoy the music?
