Monday music: hot bass-guitar "battle" between the Wooten brothers

Outstanding bass player Victor Wooten and his brother Regi stage a tight little tag-off for our benefit.

Victor Wooten is a phenomenally-skilled bass player, btw. I saw him with Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, opening for Chicago. He did a fiery bass solo then, as well, decades ago.

[PS — I felt like I've posted this in the past, but ran several searches and can't find it. If so... here we are again!]

Its funny. Victor makes me wanna quit playing bass somedays, just like Edwards makes me wanna quit writing. Other days, I can find no better inspiration. In my life, greatness inspires humble creativity.

Ever listen to Bela Fleck's outstanding album entitled "Tales from the Acoustic Planet"? One of my favorites, Victor's presence is seemless on that disk.

I haven't had one of their albums. I know their music from their opening for Chicago (I think I saw them twice), and jazz stations. Pretty unique: banjo, bass, and Future Man — who is actually Victor's brother..

Well now here’s a shock; a percussionist likes it when guitar players play their guitars like a percussionist.
