Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Electric bass virtuoso Victor Wooten is a Grammy nominee and the only three-time winner of Bass Player magazine's 'Bass Player of the Year' award. Here he makes his his Heads Up debut with this mesmerising 12-song set. The recording boasts a long list of special guests including Keb' Mo', Alvin Lee, Richard Bona and Mike Stern. Sells hugely to fusion and funk fans and musos alike.

From the Artist

"It doesn't matter how you go about writing songs," says bassist Victor Wooten. "The music is coming from somewhere. If we think it's our brain, or some strictly intellectual source, I would say we're mistaken. Sometimes the songs show up quickly, almost completely. That's when you realize, `Wow, I didn't even write this song. It happened on its own.' But whether it comes together in 30 minutes or several months, it's coming from the same place. Call it what you want to - spirituality, mysticism, whatever - that energy is there. The musician is the conduit that enables that energy to enter the world."

"Victor Wooten's "Palmistry" comes closest to handling matters the best by giving him a fair amount of personal space even if surrounded by busy arrangements and African background voices. "The Lesson", for instance, is a duet that features only bass and a rhythm box along with hand claps".Pittzburg Tribune

Guest musicians on his new album are Mike Sternon guitar, Richard Bona on percussion and vocals, Karl Denson on tenor saxophone, Keb' Mo' and several others.

Just the very first spins of the first trach make clear his position as a top notch bass player (he is the veteran bassist of Béla Fleck & the Flecktones) and an excellent composer.

The tracks are all original compositions with the exception of Horace Silver's "Song For My Father".

The musincianschip is fantastic and Victor is on the top of the game.

This a an excellent mix of jazz fusion, blues, gospel, funk and world and the album is very enjoyable for both instrumentals and vocals.

My favourite tracks are : "2 Timers", the middle-eastern tinged "Combo", "I Saw God," which features Richard Bona among its vocalists and the Spanish rhythm flavoured "The Lesson".

Victor's fans will want this for their collections. It's one of his best CDs out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great album April 6, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Victor wooten is just an incredible person. He's talented beyond belief and still supremely humble and spiritual. He shines on this album. I had just gotten this album and was listening to it when some friends stopped by. They arent musicians and are more into top 40 stuff but they really got into this album. All of the tracks are great but I think the standout track is I saw god...Worth the buy...pick it up...if you're reading this you're probably a fan of his's good....get it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Palms and Fingers April 4, 2009

This man is a genius. He can play any genre and you will enjoy it. See him in person with his band or with Bella Fleck, you won't regret it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A really satisfying album September 17, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I've tried a few Victor Wooten albums in the past, but was never particularly hooked on any of them. But this one really works. There are a couple of songs that are just platforms for bass gymnastics that aren't very interesting--I've never been a fan of slap bass--and there are some cheesy solos here and there, but most of the cuts, especially the first four songs, are excellent for their ensemble playing, energy, and composition. As good as the bass playing is, the drumming is even better.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Continuing Evolution of Victor Wooten November 9, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album has been around for a while, but I only recently got around to getting a copy, after having enjoyed Soul Circus for quite a while.

There is a real evolution in Wooten's song writing and playing. This is a guy who is not only a fantastic player, but who can write catchy tunes and someone who has really spent some time thinking about life. All this comes out in Palmystery, which is a wonderful album.

This is probably on of my favourite latest Vic's album.
It's punchy, the bass sounds great and the groove sections on all the tunes are so in the pocket.
Love to listen. Not only for bass players listeners.
