Bela Fleck and The Flecktones – Outbound

Outbound is comprised of very upbeat and groovy songs mixed with organs, saxophones, … percussion, and of course, bela’s banjo. Alot of the songs seem like they have an African decent. The production quality of the cd is excellent with all songs have excellent arrangements. I really enjoy how all of the instruments are blended together, and compliment each other. In some jazz cd’s it sounds as if each player is playing for himself and not for the group, but this cd has amazing arrangements that have tension and release, along with amazing solos. “Earth Jam” is one of my favorite songs on the cd, with bela’s electric banjo dueling it out with the saxophone. Outbound is another amazing Bela Fleck cd, and I can wait to go see him this summer when he plays at the Weidner Center in Green Bay, WI.
