8 p.m. Tuesday, October 2, at San Jacinto College (Slocumb Auditorium), 8060 Spencer Hwy., Pasadena, 713-476-1501 or arts.sanjac.edu/node/8279.
Victor Wooten is the kind of musician who leaves other musicians, especially bass players, in awe. One of his four older brothers taught Wooten the four-string arts at age three, and he's gone on to a distinguished career that includes stints with both jazz-fusion master Stanley Clarke and progressive-bluegrass pickers Béla Fleck & the Flecktones. Today Wooten owns a Nashville studio and runs his own record label, VIX Records, which is releasing two albums this month: the instrumental Sword and Stone, and Words and Tones, which welcomes vocalists such as Sharon Jones, Meshell Ndegeocello and Beyoncé backup Divinity Roxx. Tuesday's show is a benefit for the Brittany Williams Scholarship Fund.
