Overview

Groundbreaking banjoist, composer, and bandleader Bela Fleck has reconvened the original Bela Fleck & The Flecktones. Rocket Science marks the first recording by the first fab four Flecktones in almost two decades. Alongside Bela Fleck is pianist/harmonica player Howard Levy, bassist Victor Wooten, and percussionist/Drumitarist Roy “Futureman” Wooten creating some of the most forward-thinking music of their long, storied career.

Fusing all manners of genres from classical and jazz to electrical blues and Eastern European folk dance, the result is a sound of their own. Simply put, it is The Flecktones, the music made only when these four individuals come together.

“…Virtuoso musicianship and mastery of improvisation.”– WXPN 

“Astoundingly adept musicians who are comfortable playing virtually any type of music." – Jazz Times
