Victor Wooten is one of the most celebrated electric bassists of all time. His secret seems to lie in doing his own thing, breaking boundaries and defying categorization along the way. Chip Stern wrote in Musician Magazine that Wooten is "proof that all men are not created equal." To this Wooten says, "A lot of guys who have been around for a long time are shocked when they see some of the things I'm doing. Fortunately, they like it." Live In America is the first time that Wooten's explosive live show has been captured on cd. The two disc set was recorded on tour over the past four years and features Wooten's bandmates Regi Wooten (guitar), Joseph Wooten (keyboard), JD Blair (drums) and vocalist MC Divinity as well as surprise guests Marcus Miller and Bootsy Collins. Among the album's 18 tracks are new versions of songs from Wooten's three previous studio albums as well as several never before recorded songs including "Nobody Knows My Name" and "Good People." Other stand out tracks include the gorgeous yet funky original "Sacred Silence/Jam Man," an extended jam with fellow bass monster Marcus Miller on "Miller Time," a spoken word band introduction offered by Bootsy Collins and "Tappin And Thumpin" and a rare recorded feature for guitar shredmaster and Wooten's brother/teacher Regi Wooten. Above all, Live In America captures Wooten and company's obvious joy in bringing music to a live audience night after night. Wooten explains, "We are a very lucky group of people. We know this and we try not to take it for granted. Traveling around the world playing music is a wonderful thing and it produces many wonderful moments. Many of these moments are on this CD: my first time on stage with Marcus Miller, the intro that Bootsy recorded, especially for us, MC Divinity and Anthony Wellington on their first tours, and the night that I improvised a second verse on "Good People" because I had neglected to write one, and which the guys wouldn't let me erase for this CD. I had just written the song on the airplane ride the day before."

"Wooten has done more than anyone...to redefine the possibilities on the electric bass.  United Press International

Muze PNote Victor Wooten's fourth solo record is a double-disc package documenting four years on the road with brothers Reggie Wooten (guitar and vocals) and Joseph Wooten (keyboards and vocals), as well as JD Blair (drums and vocals). The Wooten band serves up full-throttle funk, R&B, and pop power ballads, as well as feel-good fusion, often with a dash of hip-hop courtesy of rapper (and guest bassist) MC Divinity. The leader's widely celebrated bass virtuosity is on display throughout, but most explicitly during "Hey Girl," "Tappin' and Thumpin'," "Sacred Silence/The Jam Man," "Me and My Bass Guitar," and "Pretty Little Lady." Disc one begins with a studio-recorded introduction from P-Funk bass legend Bootsy Collins, disc two with a bass duel featuring fusion veteran Marcus Miller. Tributes to other musical heroes (Sly Stone, James Brown, and Jaco Pastorius) crop up during the course of the album's 118 combined minutes. While there's much to be said for their tightness and musicianship, Wooten and company can get bogged down in overly long jams, and some of their live schtick doesn't translate so well on record. ~ David R.
