[BASSISM] For about 30 years, bassist Victor Wooten’s been contributing his low-end skills to work by everyone from Béla Fleck to Buckshot LeFonque. Some of that’s been overly academic in nature, as Wooten showcases a talent that has to be forcibly set within the constraints of newgrass, jazz and funk. If that’s a heavy-handed criticism, the title of Wooten’s 2013 release, The Music Lesson, bears it out. And while that newest long-player factors in a wash of avant settings for the bassist to use, quoting “Amazing Grace” on a track called “Fresh Scent” exhibits both a ridiculously broad knowledge of music, as well as a misunderstanding of audience. At least Futureman’s gonna be there.
