Bassists donít come much more widely respected than Victor Wooten, who has won five Grammys and has topped numerous “Greatest Bass Players in the Galaxy”-type lists since getting his start on the instrument when he was little more than a toddler.
His longest-running collaboration has been as a member of the much-loved progressive bluegrass outfit Bela Fleck and The Flecktones. Wooten is also prolific as a solo artist and is a favorite on the fusion and jam-band circuits, having recorded and performed with the likes of The Dave Matthews Band, Bruce Hornsby, Stanley Clarke, Govít Mule, Jaco Pastorius, Chick Corea and a host of others.
This week, Wooten just dropped two albums, “Words and Tones” and an instrumental album called “Sword and Stone.”
