Five-time GRAMMY award-winning bass player, producer, composer, author, and educator Victor Wooten is coming to Jackson with the Victor Wooten Trio – comprised of Wooten, legendary drummer Dennis Chambers (Bootsy Collins, Santana), and veteran saxophonist Bob Franceschini (Mike Stern, Paul Simon).
“To be in a band, you have to listen to each other. Bands are at their best when every instrument is different, not the same. Everyone takes turns talking. Everyone speaks their voice,” says Wooten.
Named “one of the Top 10 Bassists of All Time” by Rolling Stone and named one of the “50 Iconic Black Trailblazers,” in the Huffington Post pictured just after President Barack Obama. Wooten first “wowed music heads” nationwide (Kansas City Star) in 1987, as a founding member of Béla Fleck & The Flecktones.
