Product Overview

The Heads Up debut of this premier bassist mixes jazz, funk, pop, soul, gospel, world music and more, with a diverse guest list that includes Mike Stern, Richard Bona, Keb’ Mo’ and several others. The result is an amalgam of voices, styles and grooves, but one that never fails to hold together at its rock-solid core.

As the virtuoso bass man for Bela Fleck, Victor Wooten has become a hero to four- (and five-) stringers everywhere. On his own, he creates a sound that largely rejects the rootsier side of Fleck's sound, embracing instead the funk and jazz-fusion flavors that have already been flowing through him for many years. Wooten's been making solo albums since the mid-'90s, but PALMYSTERY is one of his most wide-ranging efforts yet, incorporating soul/R&B, gospel, bluesy guitar licks (courtesy of Keb' Mo'), and of course the death-defying thumb acrobatics for which the world-class bassist is best known
Professional Reviews
Down Beat (p.80) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Wooten's jaw-dropping, expressive technique on electric bass ties together all of this music, but there's an equal emphasis on inventive arrangements and contributions from an extended cast of family and friends."
JazzTimes (p.102) - "On the genre-bending PALMYSTERY, Wooten showcases his extraordinary range and unparalleled facility on a collection of originals..."

Bass Player "No bass player since Jaco Pastorius has had Wooten's influence on an entire generation of bassists...Palmystery is a sort of coming-out party for a new side of Wooten's playing, one that still amazes, but is deeply grounded in harmony, melodicism, and an ever more expressive musical vocabulary..."
