Brought to you by FUNKNSTUFF.NET and hosted by Scott “DR GX” Goldfine — musicologist and author of “Everything Is on THE ONE: The First Guide of Funk” ― “TRUTH IN RHYTHM” is the interview show that gets DEEP into the pocket with contemporary music’s foremost masters of the groove.

Featured in TIR Episode 164 (2 parts): Victor Wooten, a composer-producer-multi-instrumentalist who is best known as one of the most accomplished bass players of his generation.

First bursting onto the radar of adventurous music lovers in 1990 with the eclectic bluegrass-meets-jazz fusion of Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, he would go on to not only perform on more than a dozen Fleck albums but also establish himself as a top-shelf solo artist and collaborator. With music that spans jazz, funk, rock, soul, world music and more, Wooten has captured five Grammys and is a three-time recipient of Bass Player magazine’s Bass Player of the Year Award.

As if that was not enough, he is also an educator and inspiration to aspiring musicians everywhere. Here he covers his mighty career, with particular insights about his youth and early career with the Wooten Brothers and he even breaks out a bass for a short funk lesson!
