Editor’s Note: At the end of each year, we tally up all the article and video views on No Treble to come up with a list of the top 10 most popular bassists. This is entirely based on readership, not on opinions, polls, or anything else. Just having some fun.
Has there ever been a year that Victor Wooten didn’t make the annual top 10 list? I don’t remember one.
Vic had some exciting news to share in 2019, including a new Bass Extremes album (and tour) with Steve Bailey, his continued work with the Flecktones, and a record with David Liebman.
Victor was also featured a handful of times with some of his incredible videos – including one near and dear to our hearts: his video with Bailey helping us celebrate our 10th anniversary in May.
Last year we shared the news that Victor Wooten and Steve Bailey were working on a new “Bass Extremes” album. Now it seems things are continuing to move forward with the group as they'll be hitting the road for a week of dates in January.
Back in 2007, Bela Fleck & The Flecktones performed the Byron Bay Bluesfest. Here’s a great clip of them playing “Throwdown at the Hoedown,” with that great intro by Victor Wooten.
Béla Fleck & The Flecktones are keeping the party going as they’ve announced a second leg of their 30th Anniversary Tour. The group’s next round of touring will focus on the East Coast from November to March of 2020.
You may have heard… today is No Treble’s 10th anniversary! We’re thrilled to have Victor Wooten and Steve Bailey sharing in the celebration.
During the 2018 PASIC Convention, Victor Wooten’s trio took the stage and performed music from their album, “Trypnotyx.” Here’s a clip of the band performing “Liz & Opie”, with Vic, Dennis Chambers, and Bob Franceschini. Of course, they nailed it.
Saxophonist David Liebman hit it big when he joined Miles Davis in 1972 for the recording of the album “On The Corner.” Now, 47 years after the album’s recording, Liebman has gathered an incredible band to pay homage to the album - including Victor Wooten.
During the 2019 Winter NAMM show, Victor Wooten and John Ferrara got together at the Hartke booth to jam, and it was fantastic.
