The youngest of five musically inclined brothers, Victor Wooten took up the bass guitar at age three, influenced by jazz fusion stars Jaco Pastorius and Stanley Clarke. After recording an album with the Wooten Brothers Band for Arista Records in 1985, he moved to Nashville, where he joined bluegrass banjo virtuoso Bela Fleck to form the Flecktones. The group's resulting new hybrid, fusion-bluegrass, became popular both within the jazz, bluegrass, and jam-band rock scenes. After leaving Fleck, Wooten expanded his palette to incorporate world music, funk, smooth jazz, bebop, and pop, becoming universally recognized as one the most creative and technically accomplished electric bass players of his generation. ~ Rovi

Victor Lemonte Wooten 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 five, and at age six, was on tour with his brothers opening shows for legendary soul artist Curtis Mayfield. Soon after, he was affectionately known as the 8-year-old Bass Ace, and before graduating high school, he and his brothers had shared the stage with artists such as Stephanie Mills, War, Ramsey Lewis, Frankie Beverly and Maze, Dexter Wansel, and The Temptations. But, this only begins to tell the tale of this Tennessee titan.

Wooten, now a five-time Grammy winner, hit the worldwide scene in 1990 as a founding member of the super-group Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. Continuing to blaze a musical trail with the band, Victor has also become widely known for his own Grammy nominated solo recordings and tours.
