[JAZZ FUSION] He’s won five Grammys. He’s been a member of the unclassifiable, jam-happy Béla Fleck and the Flecktones for more than two decades. He’s worked with Bootsy Collins, Chick Corea and Prince. But nothing compares to the simple joy of seeing Victor Wooten play electric bass guitar. His jazz-fusion sound lilts and floats like his predecessor as ruler of the low-end, Jaco Pastorius, but Wooten also is capable of driving funk breakdowns. His hands move supernaturally along the neck of his trademark Fodera bass. Wooten appeals to and conjures a spiritual side of music not often seen in such high-quality performers, so don’t be surprised if revelations appear as those stubby, strong fingers fly down the fretboard.
