Touring in support of his forthcoming new album, Palmystery, Flecktones bass virtuoso VICTOR WOOTEN performs at Glenside's Keswick Theatre on the same day as the album's worldwide release, Tues., Apr. 1 @ 7:30 PM.

Regarded as one of the most influential bassists since Stanley Clarke and the late Jaco Pastorius, WOOTEN is known for his solo recordings and tours, and as a member of the GRAMMY-winning supergroup, Bela Fleck & The Flecktones. WOOTEN's sense of creative exploration has fueled a highly successful career that spans more than two decades, five solo recordings, and a diverse resume of guest-artist work. He is a brilliant technician and innovator on the bass guitar, as well as a talented composer, arranger, producer, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist.

In keeping with the ongoing philosophy of genre-bending eclecticism that has driven all of his solo work, “Palmystery" explores the mystery of creation and embraces a range of styles - jazz, funk, pop, soul, gospel and world music. The result is an amalgam of voices, styles and grooves, but one that never fails to hold together at its core - in much the same way that WOOTEN's legions of devoted fans hail from all walks of life and all corners of the globe, yet share a common affinity for artistic diversity.

WOOTEN sees himself and his collaborators as channels who tap into a higher creative power to bring music into the world and deliver it to an audience. “A song is just an idea until someone brings it into the world. That's the great mystery of music or any creative endeavor. The power is in the palm of your hand," explains WOOTEN.

The April 1 release date of Palmystery is also simultaneous with the release of The Music Lesson, WOOTEN's new novel published by Berkley Trade Paperback (The Penguin Group USA). “The Music Lesson" is the story of a struggling young musician who is unexpectedly visited by a mysterious, seemingly mystic music teacher who guides him through a spiritual journey of higher education in both music and life.

Tickets are $28.50 and can be ordered online, via 24-Hr. Phone-Charge (215-572-7650), and in person at the box office Mondays thru Saturdays from 10 AM to 5 PM.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
