Includes both Bass Day 1998 videos: Victor Wooten: Live at Bass Day 1998 and Francis Rocco Prestia - Live at Bass Day 1998.
Victor's entire presentation from Bass Day '98. Accompanied by guitar and drums, Victor presents a set of amazing music that stretches from the serious thunder funk of "U Ain't Got No Groove" to classic performances of "Amazing Grace" and "Norwegian Wood." Victor is joined onstage in a finale, by the great Oteil Burbridge. Victor also discusses his thoughts about music as a language and the tradition of the electric bass. He provides a brilliant lesson on bass technique, including exercises for developing his new staccato thumb/multiple pluck technique. An amazing performance filled with plenty of instruction. 80 minutes.
Francis Rocco Prestia has earned a place among the all-time great bass stylists. Here, accompanied by Tower of Power members David Garibaldi and Jeff Tamelier along with original member Lenny Pickett, he performs a burning set of seven TOP classics, including Oakland Stroke, Soul Vaccination, Squib Cakes, and What Is Hip? plus tunes from his acclaimed solo album. He also talks about creating a groove, his early days with TOP, and more. Also included is a 30-minute lesson with Rocco. Running Time: 77 minutes.
