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.

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.
those chops are just a means to an end, and not an end it themselves.
2 Timers is an upbeat song that sounds like it could have come from Weather Report, and features some very fine harmonica work. It has a smooth transition where the bass part stays the same behind a very clever time change, from frenetic bounce to easygoing stroll and then
back again. Cambo has a vague vocal (indistinct lyrics, or maybe none at all) that sounds influenced by Middle Eastern laid over a strong foundation, but with a keyboard solo that unfortunately degrades into finger exercises. I Saw God is a happy-sounding tune with a lyric that gives a lighthearted but thoughtful and non-self-righteous view of religion ("I saw God the other day, she looked like you he looked like me," and "'You see, 'I'm not a religious type of person,' and he said, 'You don't have to be.'"). The Lesson is a bass solo feature with some percussive background that is influenced by Spanish music. Left, Right & Center is a selection with a touch of Brecker Brothers-style fusion-funk as multiple instruments double the same lines.Read more ›
