"the sinister minister" by Bela Fleck and the Flecktones

This tune has been on my playlist for awhile, and it starts out w/ a really catchy groove by probably the best bassist in the world, Victor Wooten. Gradually the banjo comes in (Bela Fleck) and jams for a while. Bela Fleck and the Flecktones is one of my favorite bands, because they arrived at a time when audiences were becoming a little more daring with their musical choices. Fans were ready for a new and innovative sound, music that went beyond the boundaries. A band consisting of piano, bass, banjo, harmonica and drumitar (really called a synth-axe, played by Wooten's brother) sounded really refreshing.
