Man, i just saw victor wooten in concert yesterday at the zoo (it is called the Woodland Park Zoo Concert Series or something, not the new "Jazz man exhibit") with Bela Fleck and The Flecktones. They put on a great show. They play with great musical humor, and they are among the greatest musicians in the world. I'm going to skip all the cool bela fleck stuff (unless you bass players are interested, bela actually did some cool stuff though). They were always playing Zoo/Animal music like "The lion sleeps tonight" and other songs. Victor even started to play continuum. If i called people "The greatest (intrument goes here) player" i would call victor wooten "The greatest bass player" but, unlike jaco, i don't beleive in calling people "the greatest", because it is impossible to judge. How can you compare Edgar Meyer and Victor Wooten? How could you compare any country/bluegrass player to a rock player or jazz player? See my point? Well Victor is the best at what he does. (and by that i don't mean play bass, because there are too many great bass players to judge, but the way he plays.) But i do beleive i'm pretty safe to say that Bela Fleck is the greatest contemporary jazz banjo player of all time(he is one of the greatest bluegrass player too). Victor blew my mind, and it pisses some people off because he is so talented, but i keep a positive attitude (here's my 19% gay kicking in.) Overall i have to say that The Flecktones are in their own universe when it comes to their talent.
