Stanley Clarke and the movies

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by MikeyFingers, Feb 24, 2006.

  1. I was flipping through the TV last night and usually when I channel surf, I go pretty fast. As the images flashed by on the screen, I caught a glimpse of a familiar name. It was the movie "BAPS" with Halley Barry and in the opening credits, I saw Stanley Clarke's name credited with the score for the movie.
    After a little research, I found out that he did the music for a few other movies too, including The Transporter (now I know why I loved that music so much). I was just wondering there were any other musicians who did this. Is it a regular thing for them to switch over to movie scores?
    Either way, I thought it was pretty cool.
  2. Marcus Miller has done the music for quite a few movies. He did Bommerang (Eddie Murphy), Above the Rim, The Ladies Man, and quite a few others. You can see them all at his website.

    And for Passenger 57 too (I think that's what it's called). Not a very good film, and some corny music too...
    Herbie's score for Death Wish (saw the sequal mentioned above) is so cool!
  8. recently stan did the music for the movie Roll Bounce. BET Jazz even had a show called Masters of Music(or something like that) that talked about it. He said he got to funk out on alot of parts.
