Béla Fleck and The Flecktones

The original quartet is touring together again after almost twenty years, in support of Béla Fleck and The Flecktones’ newest album, “Rocket Science.” Bringing African, classical, Eastern European folk, and electric blues influences to their acclaimed jazz-bluegrass sound, “Rocket Science” is an eclectic blend of musical inspirations. “There’s a special thing that happens when the four of us get together and play,” said pianist/harmonica player Howard Levy, who left the band in 1992 and rejoined in 2011. Local jazz students may recognize bassist Victor Wooten with fond memories of camp at the Victor Wooten Center for Music and Nature.
