New album from Grammy Award winner Victor Wooten
Victor Wooten’s unique approach to the bass guitar caused shock waves when he first emerged circa 1986. Looking over his prolific discography – which to date includes nine solo albums, 14 albums with the Flecktones and numerous collaborations, including the SMV album and tour with Stanley Clarke and Marcus Miller – it’s striking that he’s constantly able to renew his creative spark with each new project.
One of the great successes of Victor’s recent past has been a collaboration with drummer Dennis Chambers and saxophonist Bob Franchesini. What could have been another bolted-together ‘superband’ simply convened to put bums on seats, has resulted in a brand-new studio album – full of surprisingly varied and expansive music – as well as a tour. Produced by Wooten, TRYPNOTYX also features vocalist Varijashree Venugopal and ‘voicetrumentalist’ Michael Winslow of Police Academy fame. It’s available for pre-order now and will be available everywhere from September 8th.
