Bela Fleck & the Original Flecktones 

When: Wed., April 25, 7:30 p.m. 2012
Price: $79-139

Featuring the original Flecktones lineup—exploratory banjoist Béla Fleck, virtuosic bassist Victor Wooten, aptly dubbed percussionist Future Man and harmonica/ piano master Howard Levy—this prolific quartet successfully experiments across a slew of global genres. To wit, Fleck himself has been nominated for Grammys in eight different categories. But rather than haphazardly throw together disparate elements, the Flecktones, at least at their best, unify bits of progressive bluegrass, post-bop and traditional African styles as if they belonged together. Both bluegrass and jazz purists will surely find fault in the Flecktones' so-called blu-bop, though those who appreciate originality can't miss with such innovative fusion. —Spencer Griffith
