Victor L. Wooten
Whatever this evening will be in the virtual format it will be - surely great - but one can only imagine what a live and in-person occasion it would be to have five-time Grammy Award winner, bass player, composer, and producer Victor L. Wooten talk (and play?) in discussing his new book, The Music Lesson: A Spiritual Search for Growth Through Music (Penguin).
“Victor Wooten has been doing things on the bass that nobody dreamed of, and we bass players can’t help but hunger for some insight into what inspires him and how he does it. Here, as in his music, he surprises us and gives us more depth than we expected, more of himself than many would dare. This is his journey, his mystical quest, not merely to play the bass but to fully encounter and understand Music itself.”—Tony Levin.
Victor L. Wooten is also an original member of Béla Fleck and the Flecktones.
