VICTOR WOOTEN, the renowned bass player for Béla Fleck, recently reissued his solo debut, A Show Of Hands, now re-mastered and with 3 bonus tracks and entitled A Show of Hands 15, on his own VIX RECORDS.   When originally released 15 years ago, A Show Of Hands set the music world on fire as the virtuoso Wooten produced a masterful CD with only two hands, one 4-string bass guitar, and no overdubs, raising the level and credibility of the bass guitar into a class previously reserved only for pianists and guitarists.

Heralded as “the Michael Jordan of the bass” and “the most influential bassist since Jaco Pastorius,” VICTOR WOOTEN has won Bass Player Magazine’s “Bassist of the Year” Award three times (the only person to win it more than once). 

Victor was recently voted in The Top 10 Greatest Bass Players of All Time in Rolling Stone’s Readers’ Poll!
