    I just got it, haven't listened to it enough to comment, just wanted to provide a heads up.

    Thanks, Blisshead.
    The heads up is appreciated. I'll check it out.
  3. Say what? Is it a new Victor album? I'm gonna go search this right now on the net. Thanks for the heads up!
  4. I got it and I'm liking it. I'm seeing yet another side to Vic that I haven't seen before. He really funks it up with his brothers Reggie and Joseph on this one. I wish I could have seen this show. It's basically one funky party. One of the tracks is a funky medley of James Brown to Purple Haze (Jimi Hendrix) to Black Sabbath! This album captures the vibe of the Wooten family rather than just Victor. Some pretty far out arrangements of Vic tunes that we may already be familiar with. Plus Vic jams with Marcus Miller on Miller Time!

    I had the pleasure of seeing this band from the front row back in early 2000 when they came thru Asheville. It was an incredible 3 1/2 hour party of funk and jazz that left me spellbound... and the best bonus was that when Vic broke his main axe's G string, Anthony Wellington (his bass tech) tossed it out to me from the side of the stage. Gotta love having long arms! <lol> I still have the string sitting in my scrapbook.

    Hopefully the album has the same energy packed in it too! Thanks for the heads-up on the new release!

  6. Wow. How this eluded me until yesterday, I'll never understand. But now I am happy indeed. He does a duet with Marcus Miller (they play Teentown in unison, etc...) he unleashes MC Divinity. 2 hours of funky good time, punctuated by brief bouts of sappy smooth jazz. No 10 minute unaccompanied solo or anything, but plenty of fireworks.
