Stanley Clarke, Marcus Miller and Victor Wooten ? each a powerful force of nature in his own right ? have done more in recent decades to redefine the electric bass and push the limits of itss potential than any other musician alive today. When these three titans ? collectively known as S.M.V. ? converge on the low frequencies, the results are no less than earth shaking. Thunder, their debut collaboration set for release on August 12, 2008, is a high-energy phenomenon whose impact is guaranteed to resonate throughout every corner of the jazz world.
