Selected Discography

Comments

They remind of my niece Ginny. Great kid. Thank you.
Long time fan. Just had Victor Wooten's The Music Lesson recommended to me (Flecktones' bassist). Read it! Wow....
I recommend throw down your heart. its an incredible movie.
Haven't seen these in quite some time, to me they are awesome and good.

Bela and the flecktones are a must listen period. Listen to every cd! It's in my car, on my pandora. Blessed to have seen him several times. One of the CDs he's signed says something about being an original fleckhead!!

excellent show at Meany Hall 2-4-14. An interesting change from the last time I saw him with the Flecktones.
Met Bela Fleck last night in Seattle...bo u g h t CDs & got his autograph. Super nice guy. We chatted a bit. Amazing to watch. He played with Brooklyn Rider string quartet. Absolute must see! Hope to catch all of them again sometime. I'm hooked on their music now.
Grew up listening to the Flecktones. They are awesome!!
Anytime you are fortunate enough to see Bela live in any group or setting you will not be disappointed . His performances with the Flecktones are legendary. He is truly one of the greatest and most talented active musicians of this era. I personally have seen 4 Flecktones shows, and as many others with Bela and others it is well worth the "price of admission"!! ! ! ! ! !
Anyone, by chance, happen to catch Bela & the Tones at Music Midtown in Atlanta, IIRC, circa 1997? They were only slotted for an hour set but the headliner at that stage apparently cancelled so they played and extra 1.5 hrs. The ever growing crowd was going berserk as the show went on and on! I'll never forget the shocked/surp r i s e d but very elated look on Bela's face, on multiple occasions. They were killing it and the crowd LOVED it. Never will forget that show.
The evolution of music has delivered us this gem of a collaboratio n that seem to just keep getting better! Yes they are high tech and use lots of toys but their interments and sound remains very organic, as a musician any time I need that kick in the butt to study and broaden my knowledge and skills i just pup in the Flecktones and it's back to the wood shed! This band is admired by all musicians and are not too notey or fast for the general music listener. Do you self a favor and let them in
I always feel so good while listening... . . I just don't know what it is...love it
Quiet some time ago, I'd say 20 years ago they came to a night club my xhusband and I were working in Columbia SC, ohmy they were great. I have a signed picture from them, oh yeah, they loved my cutie daughter :) They are great.....
Saw Bela Fleck years ago in Scottsdale on tickets I won off a radio station. So glad I went - the band is awesome live. They even had special guest Stanley Jordan sit in for a few songs - he had been up in Sedona & the guys asked him to come down. Really great show, especially in an outdoor venue!
There's simply no one better. I've followed Bela Fleck's career since Crossing The Tracks and have truly enjoyed it all. Of his acoustic work--DRIVE is a marvelous disc in its entirety...w i t h most of the very best of the genre accompanying him.

Biography correction.. . Tales from the Acoustic Planet and its sequel are both solo effort from Bela, the correct discography from Three Flew Over the Cukoo's Nest is Live Art (95), then Left of Cool (98) as show in the graphic below the text.
Seen them over 10 times and judging from what I have seen and heard from them ,they are deffinately FLYING SAUCER DUDES !!!!!!!
Perhaps the BEST pure musician/art i s t who has ever walked the face of planet earth. I have seen them twice. I wish I was a flecktone.

It is rare for an artist to reinvent an instrument, and even more rare for that artist to be recognized during their lifetime. Bela, Edgar, Wooten, Mark, Jerry, Sam, Chris...thes e are all individuals who have done just that...and they have somehow found each other and the public has recognized the talent. It is a wonderful time to be a music lover. We live in a unique time. Years from now, people will be talking about what it must have been like to live through these times.

Victor Wooten and Bela Fleck RULE !!!!

I saw the Flecktones many years ago @ Miami University in Hamilton Ohio, a very small, intimate theater setting with seating for maybe 400. Even as a musician, I was mesmerized and agree with jcpollack1 below that I'm not convinced they are human. Absolutely a flawless live performance unmatched by any other. Very innovative!
BACKSTAGE AT THE LIONELL HAMPTON JAZZ FEST AND OVEERHEARD ONE OF THE PRODUCERS SAY THAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO HAVE BELA FLECK AS ONE OF THE HEADLINERS NEXT YEAR & I JUST HAD TO SAY TO THEM GREAT CHOICE , I HOPE IT COMES TRUE
love beta love big wu love hooch
Had tickets to a Jazz Series about 15+ years ago, and one of the acts canceled and were replaced with Bela Fleck & the Flecktones w/Sam Bush. The crowd was very skeptical when the show started, but WOW they brought the house down!!! Bela, Sam, Victor, and Futureman won over a lot of fans that night!!
Saw you guys at Mishawaka on the Poudre River way back in the day...good times.
Pure and simply the best I have heard, when it comes to progressive picking and progressive grinning.

These are simply great musicians in the purest sense. They graciously welcome fellow musicians to add to the magic. You cannot witness their performances without realizing you are part of something special. In times of cookie cutter compositions , experiencing something so unique and original is simply wonderful. No flash, no gimmicks - just talent. I hope they continue forever.
fkhallmd
AWESOME!! When you see them you understand just how talented they all are. Love them to pieces!
this is what real music is all about , and if any one says different they just dont have any grove ............ . . . . . . jam on
Cool use of this instrument - really caught my attention!

I've been a fan of Bela and the Wootens (and whoever they had joining them in the Flecktones) ever since I first saw them play the Jacksonville Jazz Festival back in 1991. Vic played a bass solo during the set on a cordless electric bass while swinging it around his body like a hula hoop. It was insane...and strangely good. Live or on CD, they never fail to entertain.

I had no idea Bela was from NYC. Hey Bela come play the Egg in Albany!
Barry Weber -- You need to let go of the past and turn your mind to the future, bro'. Bela wrestled the banjo out of Appalachia and whisked it away to the jazz clubs of New York, LA and Europe, reinventing the instrument's sound and musical catalog along the way. Together with Victor, Future Man and their many excellent friends, our hero has done for instrumental music what Cezanne, Matisse and Picasso did for fine art.

Quick-Pick, yah!

MY NAME IS BARRY WEBER. I LKE BANJO. I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND THIS.
The Flecktones, my favorite band appears here on the Jean-Luc Ponty station. Nice surprise, but when you think about it, Bela's music is so diverse it fits almost anywhere. Glad to hear them in this context.
I've seen many bands through the years . This band ,in whatever lineup they have at the time has some of the BEST MUSICIANS ON THE PLANET ............ . . . I have seen them many times ,and met and talked to them. It's amazing how humble and down to earth they are,being as good as they are.
Vic Wooten has to be the best musician ever. The guys amazing
chap4233
Check out amazing grace improv on Live Art. Amazing harmonics.
I ask people (the ones who think they've heard and know what really good music & musicians are) if they've heard of the Flecktones.. . they usually say, "What the f$#@ is a Flecktone?" So I play some for them, freaks them right out!
AMAZING. Best concert I've ever been to. Tennessee Theatre
Amazing and SO inspiring to many musicians. out of pure talent i think this is the best band ever.
jcpollock1
Not completely sure they're human...
lovemark36
check out strength in numbers-bela ' s in/on it-wow!
rscharlotte
if you ever have the chance to see victor wooten, bela's bass player, in concert with his own band, you must go.
All of the Flecktones, including Howard Levy, are revolutionar y musicians and composers who each add (Howard still plays with them occasionally ) their own unique style to the group! This is one of my favorite groups of all time!
The funky Banjo man....
Brand X, Return To Forever( with Al DI) Dixie Dregs, Weather Report. All bring a whole new sound from top to bottom. Not just incerdible musianship, but a new direction. wineguy
