Wooten + Fleck on new Bill Evans (sax) album

  1. I heard this yesterday and I have a review copy - it's called 'Soulgrass' (crappy title) and it basically sounds like the Fleckontes - but - with a real drummer! The drummer being none other than Vinnie Colaiuta...who's awesome.

    Woot isn't on all tracks but he plays great when he is - take a nice couple of solos and his lines are great in support - the other tracks are played by Mark Egan - and they do rip it up with style - plus it's so nice to hear a deep pocket with a drummer - not 'drumitar' - with Vic. The only downside are the cheesey numbers - but there's only a couple of those - overall well worth looking out for.
