Arguably one of the best living bass players, Victor Wooten has created a name for himself with a virtuositic playing style and an inherent knack for how low-end frequencies can add layers upon layers of nuance to nearly any sonic arrangement. The youngest child in an extremely musical family, Wooten began learning how to play the bass and the young age of two and by the time he was six, Wooten was already performing in front of audiences. Though Wooten began his career as a professional musician when he started playing with his brothers in a band that played at the Busch Gardens amusement park in Williamsburg, Virginia, his fame as a premier bass player really started to take off after he joined the forward-thinking, progressive bluegrass outfit Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. In the group, Wooten was provided with ample room to properly stretch his musical muscles and showcase his innate ability to create extremely dexterous, yet somehow not too flashy bass lines with a tone and timbre entirely his own.
