Album Review

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.

No real human being could play this good.

Why do I have to buy the whole album?

I thought the great thing about iTunes was the ability to purchase one song at a time. I want to buy "Miller Time" but Apple wants me to buy the entire album. Why? It's very annoying.

Victa is legend already

Victor is one of the greatest bassist of all time. There are many bassist that have amazing chops, but Victa still grooves while displaying bass pyrotechnics. This is one of his best CD's, many of hit best known tunes, but a great version of Sly's "If you want me to stay/Thank for lettin me be myself." If a bass player or a Funk lover this is a must have CD.

Bassist Victor Wooten began his musical career early.

After playing regional tours and opening for acts like Mayfield and War, the Wootens recorded an album in 1985. However, the record received little commercial or critical response, and eventually the Wooten...
