Even though there hasn't been much of a member shake-up since the band's inception in 1988, Bela Fleck & the Flecktones have just released a brand new record featuring their classic lineup.
Fleck first united the Flecktones in 1988. The original members included Howard Levy, who played piano, harmonica, and ocarina, among other instruments; bass guitarist Victor Lemonte Wooten, and his brother Roy "Future Man" Wooten on the drumitar, an electronic drum shaped like a guitar.
The Flecktones recorded their eponymous debut album in 1990 and followed it up with "Flight of the Cosmic Hippo" (1991).
From the start, there was a special kinship between the four musicians, a bond forged in a mutual passion for creativity and artistic advancement. Two more breakthrough albums and a whole lot of live dates followed before Howard Levy decided to move on in late 1992.
The departure of pianist/harmonica player and founding member in 1992 left the band as a trio. They persevered, playing as a trio for years and with many special guests, before saxophonist Jeff Coffin joined the ensemble in 1998.
After the passing of Dave Matthews Band saxophonist LeRoi Moore in 2008, Coffin took a hiatus from the band to help out the DMB camp, igniting the spark that brought Levy back to the fold in 2009.
Now, with the original lineup in place, the jazz fusion quartet's new album, "Rocket Science", is the first studio effort in 20 years that sees the incarnation of Bela Fleck, Howard Levy, and brothers Victor and Roy "Future Man" Wooten holding it down with their eclectic signature sound.
This reunion is not only a treat for fans, but for the band members as well.

Nothing quite prepares you for the musical quirkiness,diversity and technical ability that marks out Bela Fleck and the Flecktones as a group worthy of every possible accolade.Bela Fleck is of course one of the best banjo players on the planet, but more then that, he is a true adventurer.He has managed to stretch the harmonic language and technical scope of what was previously thought possible or even desirable, for the banjo,so that he can fit comfortably into just about any conceivable musical setting.For me the standout musician in this masterful quartet is Howard Levey- his contributions on Harmonica as give the group an extra melodic dimension that helps give what ever he's playing over,greater substance and appeal.But there are no passengers in this group-all are virtuosos and all have a singular voice on their respective (and often exotic) instruments.

Mixing hints of jazz, with blues, folk, rock and what can only be loosely termed World Music,the album still has a central musical identity that is anchored around great band interplay and well developed compositional skills.The key words are 'fun' and 'adventure'. If this sounds like you, then this set defiantly deserves a listen.Given the nature of the music, it is necessary to give it time,especially if like me you are new to Bela and the boys.

I like this album as something to relax to,and because it has some rather nifty grooves and some very propulsive playing,it's very good for in-car entertainment as well. Recommended.
