Despite hearing and knowing about Bela Fleck and the Flecktones for years now, it has been only recently that I’ve been taking the time to explore their music.

Normally, I would have been inspired by the excellent work of Bela Fleck that I’ve already encountered, such as his multiple collaborations with Edgar Meyer and Mike Marshall (I was even lucky enough to catch a couple of their live shows).

However, it was Flecktones bass player Victor Wooten that caught my attention. Here he is, performing a solo electric bass version of Amazing Grace during their Live at the Quick performance back in 2002.

Inspiring stuff. Enjoy.
