BAM’s R&B Festival: Victor Wooten

Victor Wooten made his name as the propulsive bassist of newgrass combo Béla Fleck & the Flecktones, helping that singular group to earn four Grammy Awards. He was nominated for another for his wildly omnivorous, jazz- and funk-inflected double album Yin Yang and has since collaborated with such luminaries as Prince, Bootsy Collins, and Chick Corea. A bravura player with virtuosity to spare, Wooten carries on the tradition of fellow bass great Jaco Pastorius by pairing impeccable technique with an ability to assimilate to any style under the sun.
