Victor Wooten Releases “Trypnotyx”, Announces Tour


Victor Wooten’s new album Trypnotyx is now available! Featuring the core trio of Wooten, drummer Dennis Chambers, and saxophonist Bob Franceschini, the record is packed with awesome grooves and musicality.

From the unison riffs of “Dc10” to the ethereal melody of “Cruising Altitude” to the gritty title track, the group is firing on all cylinders. They are also joined by vocalist Varijashree Venugopal and “voicetrumentalist” comedian Michael Winslow of Police Academy fame.

“Music is a great way – and a safe way – to teach just about any life principle,” Wooten says. “To be in a band, you have to listen to each other. Bands are at their best when every instrument is different, not the same. Everyone takes turns talking. Everyone speaks their voice. A lot of times musicians might ask, ‘What would you like me to play?’ I say, ‘Listen to the music. The music will tell you exactly what it needs.”

Trypnotyx is available now on CD and as a digital download (iTunes and Amazon MP3). The Wooten Trio will be on tour later this month through the fall in support of the album.
