Revolutionary bassist Victor Wooten has no parallel in modern music, approaching his instrument much like the ground-breaking innovators of saxophonist John Coltrane and guitarist Jimi Hendrix. A master of intricate jazz melodies, R&B arrangements and groove-inducing funk, Victor broke free of common preconceptions at an early age. Listening to his five immensely talented brothers, he learned to apply unconventional drum licks, solos, blazing percussive chops and wild explorations of melody, nuance and phrasing to his bass. Victor was just five years old when he played his first gigs with the Wooten Brothers Band opening for the likes of Curtis Mayfield and War. As a founding member of Béla Fleck & the Flecktones he won five Grammy Awards, has been honored three times by Bass Player magazine as “Player of the Year,” and is included in Rolling Stone’s “Top 10 Bassists of All Time.” An author and educator, his novel The Music Lesson: A Spiritual Search for Growth through Music, is part of the curriculum at The Berklee College of Music (where he is also a performance scholar in residence), Stanford University, and other prestigious institutions. Victor is joined on the Center Stage and in his latest album, Trypnotyx, by legendary drummer Dennis Chambers (Bootsy Collins, Santana) and veteran saxophonist Bob Franceschini (Mike Stern, Paul Simon).
