This gentleman is so talented and accomplished that singing his praises may seem redundant, but most definitely necessary. Victor Wooten is a monster on the bass and with a surplus of talent and accolades to boot ( 5 Grammys under his belt), he can navigate any musical situation with ease. Whether it be with Bela Fleck or the jazz-fusion guitarist Greg Howe, his style adapts beautifully to fit what is needed. His playing lays a strong foundation, an unwavering consistent driving force, while remaining bouncy and full of soul. He is one part of the bass super groupSMV which includes two other titans of industry Stanley Clarke and Marcus Miller. Here’s a clip of him jamming a solo that will blow your socks off.
