Bela & His Trios

Words By J-man

World renowned banjoist Bela Fleck has focused a lot of his career on trios. Within this realm, Bela has explored classical music, jazz and the depths of bluegrass/string music with some of the most talented and forward thinking musicians on the planet...

Bela Fleck, Edgar Meyer, Zakir Hussain:

Bela Fleck, Stanley Clarke, Jean Luc Ponty:

Note: there was very limited footage and none worth publishing with Ponty, so in it's place, this video with Bela, Stanley and Karen Briggs.

Bela Fleck, Bryan Sutton, Driessen:

Note: There was no solid footage of this trio, so enjoy this duo footage of Bela and Bryan.

Bela Fleck, Chick Corea, Bobby McFerrin:

Sparrow Trio (Bela Fleck , Abigail Washburn and Casey Driessen):

The above material reflects a wide range of musical stylings and abilities, thus making our choice for this week's column a no brainer. We hope you enjoyed our brief clips of Bela Fleck, now it's time to dig deeper...
