What do you get when you take the Jimi Hendrix of Banjo/Bela Fleck, The incrdible Harmonica of Howard Levy, The bass beyond basses of Victor Wooten & Future man's Drumming = The SINISTER MINISTER! This is as good a Flecktones tune as any for a fabulous Music Video. There are other great Bela/Flecktone tunes... But if you're going to start somewhere... SM is a good Jumping off point! it's ard to classify this music - the genre is rather progressive - combining bluegrass with jazz & a whole lot of non-comercial progressive stuff too. they used to get upsest when these guys showed up @ bluegrass shows. We - here in Seattle - have always welcomed them with open ears & loud applause. I've seen them perform; from the days of the Flight of the Cosmic Hippo & UFO TOFU to Jingle All The Way.... Oh there's no stopping these guys - some classical, some jazz, some country, some bluegrass, some rock, you name it - they'll put their spin on it & make it sound like something beyond anything you ever imagined it would/could be... I used to wear out Sex in a Pan from UFO Tofu (a 1992 release)... Now there's so much to play & so little time. Check Bela & his Flecktones out - if you want something fun & original... WOW ME... will soon be uttered by U2.
