Victor Lemonte Wooten, heralded as “the Michael Jordan of the bass” and “one of the most fearless musicians on the planet,” is a unique human being. Born the youngest of five boys, he began learning to play music at the tender age of two. He started performing in nightclubs and theaters as the bassist with the family band at age give and at age six was on tour with The Wooten Brothers opening shows for legendary soul artist Curtis Mayfield. Taught how to play the bass guitar by his oldest brother Regi, Victor still credits all of his brothers as his greatest musical influences.
Fast forward a few decades, and we know Wooten as a five-time Grammy winner, a founding member of the Grammy award-winning band Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, the only multiple winner of Bass Player Magazine’s reader’s poll (three times), voted one of the top ten bassists of all time by Rolling Stone Magazine, and having won just about every award awarded to a bassist.
