In the grand scheme of things, does it really matter?
No doubt Wooten was inspired by Clarke....so,-
Clarke's music/composing is waayyy ahead of Vic's(IMO).
...and, over the years, Clarke has been a more versatile player(Funk, R&B/Rock, Fusion, straightahead, Bop, Latin, Classical, etc).
Wooten's still very young & is still improving everytime I see him(does this guy ever plateau?!).
Both awesome players...this ain't the Olympics, right?
another bass pokemon question.
That's funny, John!
i am supreme basspokemon master, haaaa?
I am a "still evolving" basspokemon...
At what? Playing bass, or basketball perhaps? Because at 6'4", Stanley would kick Victor's ass at one-on-one hoops, I guarantee ya.
No doubt, man! Stanley is one tall dude. I got to meet him, years ago, at a concert...and the guy towered over me (5'6").
Unless of course Vic was on that unicycle of his...
Send Jeff Berlin into the ring. He'd knock them both out, as his hobby is boxing (hard to believe of someone who makes his living with his hands and fingers!)
Of course, It would be very entertaining to see Stanley and Jeff trying to play bass while riding a unicycle, something Victor can do.
Snappy answers for less than smart questions...
Music is not a Deathmatch...
I'd rather see a collaboration of some sort.
The threesome would surely do some amazing stuff!
nevertheless, i am supreme basspokemon master, haaaaa, and i will beat them all with my ultra-flying-purple-cheese power, haaaaa. also, i am the new super-sayan warrior, so my power is to be feared!
I'm a Stanley Clarke fan, so I prefer him.
But you can't choose from two great player.
Both of them made good things, and bad things.
(But Stanley is better)
I can just say that I fell in love with Wooten's playing on Vital Tech Tones' "Lie Detector". That slapping makes my jaw drop every time I hear it. But Clarke is the more versatile player, no doubt. But as JimK said, Wooten's got lots of time to learn.
Stanley is a great inovator and a great bass player. He has convinced a very tough studio system that bass players can write scores for movies. Victor is a great bass player also and may someday grow to where stanley is. Jeff Berlin is good at putting his foot in his mouth is this martial arts?
See kids...this is an example of what happens...when you watch too much Cartoon Network.
