artist info

Victor Wooten started performing in nightclubs and theaters as the bassist with the family band at age five and at age six was on tour with The Wooten Brothers opening shows for legendary soul artist Curtis Mayfield. 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) and voted one of the Top Ten Bassists of All Time by Rolling Stone Magazine.

Dennis Chambers is an American drummer who has recorded and performed with John Scofield, George Duke, Brecker Brothers, Santana, Parliament/Funkadelic, John McLaughlin, Niacin, Mike Stern, CAB, Greg Howe and many more. Chambers has become well known among drummers for his technique, speed and exhibits a powerful style that is technically proficient, yet highly musical and groove-oriented. He can play in a wide variety of musical genres but is perhaps most notable for his jazz-fusion, funk and Latin music playing.

Saxophonist, songwriter and arranger Bob Franceschini has appeared on more than 200 albums for artists of many idioms including Mike Stern, Paul Simon, Willie Colon, Celine Dion, Bebe Winans, Tito Puente, Tower of Power, Victor Wooten and Tom Browne. In addition to composing and arranging, Bob has performed as a touring musician with Mike Stern, The Yellow Jackets, Chaka Khan, Victor Wooten, George Benson, Paul Simon, Eddie Palmieri, Tom Browne, Willie Colón and many others.
