Basslines: Sex In A Pan

Bela Fleck and the Flecktones: Sex In A Pan


I've seen Bass Player magazine's only three-time Bass Player of the Year several times with Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, and the man deserves every Grammy. But fast isn't the only way to be funky, as aficionados of Stanley Jordan, Bootsy Collins, and their next-generation proteges well know. Founding Flecktone Victor Wooten gets full credit for letting this tune trip up to the edge of smooth without ever tipping over into tripe.

(Also, when did this theme turn into a feature on bass players, instead of basslines?)
