Bela Fleck… Class from the Harwich Spirits Shoppe


Cisco, the HSS feline here. Every once in a while, we like to take a break from the deluge of wine discussions and just give you a snippet of art that you might not have run across before. (Who can forget Karen and Ella or Kseniya?) That being said, get ready to meet Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. But before you actually take a gander, a bit of background is in order…

  • Without a hint of a shadow of a doubt, Bela is one of the finest banjo players alive. He has played with everyone from Steve Martin (who is also a master with the banjo), to Earl Scruggs.
  • The bass player is “Futureman” (a.k.a. RoyEl) Forget the pirate’s hat, and focus on the drumitar. Futureman designed that… No wonder he’s a two-time Grammy winner.
  • Three-time winner of “Bass Player of the Year” from “Bass Player Magazine”, Victor Wooten is the brother of Futureman, and generally regarded as one of the top bass artists on earth.
  • Jeff Coffin is a straight-at-you modern jazz saxophonist. He can handle tenor, soprano, and alto. He’s really quite breathtaking.

And with no further adieu, here is “Next” by Bela Fleck and the Flecktones…
