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.

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 anyway...it's good....get it.

Victor Wooten is one of this eras most talented bassist. With every lick he plays on the bass, he produces a feeling that few can provide. Putting his melodic and rhythmic playing together produces very beautiful music. Love just pressin play and enjoying this album!

I love this recording because Victor Wooten and his band are always extending the possibilities of what's possible with their music, while at the same time keeping present to all of the listeners' experiences. They put love into the music every which way possible.

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.

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.

Victor Wooten is an amazing musician, he's like a one man band on four strings. If I close my eyes and just listen, I can't believe that it is just one man making all that music. Palmystery, like all of Victors other music, is outstanding and I heartily recommend it to anybody who appreciates great music and unbelievable talent.

Joe would be proud that he has influenced many young musicians and Victor attempts to carry on his Weather Report traditions.

I'm not a big fan of Joe's later world music approach and Victor does a lot of the same.

Great chops,but not a killer album for me.
