Editorial Reviews

Legendary bassist and five time GRAMMY winner Victor Wooten returns to the Compass Records family via his Vix Records imprint. Vix Records bows with a simultaneous, two album release, including SWORD AND STONE, an all instrumental affair, and WORDS AND TONES, featuring female vocalists in collaboration with Wooten, with both albums showcasing Wooten's multi-faceted approach to music, performance and songwriting. The albums were produced, engineered and mixed by Wooten and feature him on a variety of fretless, electric and acoustic bass guitars, cello, keyboards, percussion and strings, as well as vocals, with plenty of jaw-dropping bass solos to satisfy those who thrive on Wooten's amazing technical skills.

The dual release concept is a window into Wooten's unique perspective on music and the interconnectivity between all things and all of us. The word play in the titles of the two albums hints at this underlying message (move the s from the end of both WORDS AND TONES and place it in front of each to get SWORD AND STONE.) Wooten elaborates on that theme by including both vocal and instrumental renditions of many of the same songs on the albums, giving the listener at least two ways to experience the compositions. Wooten comments, 'There's something for everyone - music and messages for every age. I wrote about what was on my mind and in my heart. If the listener wants to learn, be entertained, or just casually listen, it's all available on these two CDs. Just figuring out the significance behind the two titles may be enough to make one smile.'

Featured vocalists on WORDS AND TONES include Saundra Williams (Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings) and Divinty Roxx (Beyonce) as well as a collaboration with Me'shell Ndegeocello and a beautiful duet featuring Joey Kibble (Take 6) and Cheryl Morse. SWORD AND STONE is a predictably virtuosic set, with instrumental renditions of many of the songs from WORDS AND TONES enhanced by different arrangements, solos, instrumentation and musicians (Ndegeocello, Kibble, Divinity, The Wooten Bros.).

These 2 cd's can be purchased separately, but I recommend getting both. Words and Tones has some incredible vocals (esp. Krystal singing Overjoyed) and Sword and Stone gives a different (instrumental) perspective. While 11 of the tracks on both have the same title, they are totally different versions. You may have a favorite after listening to both cd's but they both belong in your collection!

these tunes are great--slightly different arrangements of disc 1 are on disc 2--with vocals---very listenable with emphasis on the tunes --bass is mixed in well so you can notice everything else going on-----already have tickets to see Victor later in year & hoping to hear these tunes in a live setting

This is a very worthwhile set. So far I've really been digging the Sword and Stone album. It has a very good collection of different styles and actually reminds me a bit of Stanley Clarke's album "If This Bass Could Only Talk" for some reason. The words and Tones (the lyrical album to the instrumental one)is definitely worth a listen as well. Very solid and inspiring set of albums in my opinion and more than worth the money.

I love the instrumental side. It has amazing groove, playing and overall one of Mr. Wooten's best albums to date(since everything is really compared to A Show of Hands anyway). That being said I would really dig the vocal cd a lot more if the lyrics just didn't strike me as cheesy. The vocal side is still good though I like I personally liked Yin & Yang's vocal side better.

Another fine example of why Victor Wooten should be considered one of the greatest musicians of our time. This is not only a great coleection of r music, but the wordplay in the lyrics is wonderful.

Not every song is a home run, but solid, solid on the whole. The playing is so good, you'll want to stop it and move back: "did I just hear that?" Victor is an amazing musician and person.
