Accomplished bass player, Victor Wooten is in the midst of a tour in support of his new CD, Palmystery, which was released on April 1, 2008. In keeping with the ongoing philosophy of genre-bending eclecticism that has driven all of his solo work, Wooten's Heads Up debut embraces a range of styles – jazz, funk, pop, soul, gospel, world music and more – and boasts a diverse guest list that includes Mike Stern, Richard Bona, Keb' Mo' and others. Wooten is a four-time Grammy Award-winner, an original member of Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, and the only three-time winner of Bass Player Magazine's Bass Player of the Year.

Palmystery's April 1 release date is simultaneous with the release of The Music Lesson, Wooten's new novel published by Berkley Trade Paperback (The Penguin Group USA). The Music Lesson is the story of a struggling young musician who is unexpectedly visited by a mysterious, seemingly mystic music teacher who guides him through a spiritual journey of higher education in both music and life. The themes of spirituality and mysticism at the core of The Music Lesson dovetail perfectly with those of Palmystery.
