Bela Fleck & the Flecktones – Jingle All the Way

by | 18 Nov, 2008

belafleck_coverB̩la Fleck, often considered the premiere banjo player in the world, has made a name for himself as a virtuoso instrumentalist unbounded by genre. His band The Flecktones РVictor Wooten on electric bass, Jeff Coffin on sax and flute, and Future Man on percussion Рare equally talented and adventurous as Fleck himself, and together they have made a string of critically acclaimed albums that combine bluegrass, jazz, funk and world music with technical prowess, unlimited imagination and occasional zaniness.

Their new holiday CD Jingle All the Way is all of that, with bells on – Christmas music as it’s never been heard it before, with unique tonal textures (banjo, Tuvan throat singing, klezmer mandolin), hot solos and tight ensemble arrangements that make every measure new. Jingle All the Way is the perfect stocking stuffer for those who like their Christmas music fun and challenging at the same time
