Victor Wooten - Soul Circus
When it comes to bass, noone does it quite like Victor! The virtuoso is at it again with "Soul Circus," which leans heavily on jazz, hip-hop, and R&B vibes. Far from the outer-space fusion of his playing with the Flecktones, this one relies more on constructed songs, sauntering funk, and vocal parts that showcase Victor's all-around ability. Rapid-fire bass breakdowns and jazzy solos dominate the album's weighty, thumping grooves, which are replete with warbling synths, shimmering vocal harmonies, and plenty of old-school funk style!
