searched couldnt find a thread on these guys

anyways, anyone here like em? im still cant decide if i do. maybe i havent heard enough from them. victor is pro on bass of course, and the rest are quite good at their respective instruments. i have a chance at seeing them next month, and i would be willing to spend 50 bucks just to see victor...

your thoughts on em?

I saw a dvd in jazz class, it was quite enjoyable. Interesting stuff.

Amazing band. You should definitely see them.

Good songs: The Sinister Minister, Stomping Grounds, Big Country

Their debut album is also great; although it's the only one i have heard all the way through. Live Art is also pretty amazing, from the songs I've heard of it (Stomping Grounds)

Yeah, they're great.

He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

Victor Wooten is one of my favorite bassists. I like how he can just blow everyone away while not being pretentious about it at all.

I've got quite a few albums by Bela Fleck And The Flecktones. I think Outbound is an underrated one, because from what I hear, not too many people think its so great.

I saw them Monday night with Umphrey's McGee, man what a great show that was! Bela and the Flecktones can tear it up, their live show is much better than the studio (although both are great) if you are looking into them. Earth Jam is a great one, they played it live, it was insane. I highly suggest you go see them live, it really is amazing.

And to the guy above me- YMSB=Amazing.

GO SEE THEM! Even if you're not that into them I am almost positive that if you go see tthem you will be won over. If Victor Wooten and Futurman (coolest mother****er ever) werent enough, Bela Fleck is jsut an amazing muscian. I saw Victor wooten in concert at the HOB in cleveland a few years back and it was litterally the best performance i have ever seen.
