Béla Fleck & The Flecktones – April 8th – The Ogden
By Levi Macy – April 13, 2012
The Scene: For many an ideal Easter Sunday evening would be spent around family in the comfort of a
living room, but for lovers of all things awesome in the music world, the perfect Easter Sunday would
be spent listening to world class musicians blow minds. Luckily for the fine folks of Denver, this
opportunity was reality last Sunday when Béla Fleck and The Original Flecktones took over The Ogden Theatre.
By 8:30 the venue was filled with families in their Sunday best, 20 something’s in flowing sundresses, and
even the Easter Bunny decided to show up and post up right next to the stage. It easily took the cake as
one of the best dressed crowds I’ve been a part of for quite some time.
Béla Fleck and the Flecktones: For decades now the banjo behemoth Béla Fleck has been picking five strings
and constantly challenging the norm when it comes to all genres of music. He has an honorary doctorate,
more Grammy nominations in more categories than any other human to walk this earth, and has been a constant
innovator of sound. In the late eighties he assembled a super group of musical X-men known simply as
The Flecktones. Since that time the group has gone through line-up changes, many, many ups, and I’m sure
a few downs. Then, in 2010 the original members crossed paths once again after almost 18 years of not
playing together in order to form like Voltron in order to defend the musical universe from all wrongdoers.
After the first tour together as the Original Flecktones, they recorded their latest album “Rocket Science”
and proved once again that the finer things in life only get better with age.
This past Sunday these sonic super heroes returned to the Mile High City for a no holds barred Easter extravaganza.
As soon as they took the stage the crowd roared then a silence fell as Bela’s fingers rolled ever so eloquently
around those five strings. Soon Victor Wooten made his presence known with the deep bass sounds and funky flair
that only he can bring to the stage. One by one the pieces came together and the oh-so-sweet sounds of
The Original Flecktones filled room. The set started with “Gravity Lane” off of their previously mentioned
release Rocket Science and as they found their groove it became very apparent that these fellas came to amaze us.
Howard Levy then arose from behind his grand piano and made his way to a microphone stand at the edge of the
stage for a tantalizing rendition of one of my all-time favorite songs, “Michelle,” by none other than
The Beatles. They went on seamlessly for a good 30 minutes before a single word was even spoken and then
came the introductions, each followed by a thunderous ovation. The banter was short, but witty. They really
didn’t need to say much as each of their instruments spoke volumes.
Throughout the night each member took turns under the spotlight as they kept my, and I’m sure many others,
jaw firmly planted on the floor in complete amazement. Futureman, the pirate of percussion, kept perfect
rhythm while strumming (if you can call it that) away on his one of a kind Drumitar. Levy was constantly
back and forth between the ivory’s and the mouth harp, playing notes I could only one day dream of creating
with my harmonica.
Many folks rumbled in line before the show wondering if they were only going to stick to the “new stuff,” or
dive into their memory banks and bring some nostalgia... and bring it they did. Béla explained at one point:
“There are a lot of things on this stage we haven’t played in years, so we’re going to have a little fun
with you guys.” Then, stating that the next song hadn’t been played since 1992, they ripped
into “Tell it to the Gov’ner,” and it was executed as if it had never been shelved in the first place.
At this point the rest of the band disappeared leaving only Béla and his banjo on a stool in the center of the
stage. He gave a short speech on the recent passing of banjo legend Earle Scruggs and a monstrous Scruggs
tribute followed. The rest of the band soon joined back in full force proving over and over again why they
are all respected as some of the greatest musicians on the planet.
Between Victor’s mind blowing Bass guitar gymnastics and Futureman’s supreme understanding of everything
percussive, they left no stone unturned and left me wondering “what in the hell do these guys eat for
breakfast in order to make these noises happen?” It was some of the tightest musicianship i have ever
witnessed. It was a spectacle like none other. By the end I feel like I understood what all the hub-bub
was about. It may have been a mellow crowd. with little to no dancing going on, but I can see how it would
be hard to focus on dancing when you are riding the edge of your seat is complete awe and anticipation of
what heavenly sound may come from that stage next.
For what it’s worth, the Easter Bunny didn’t stop moving for a single second during the entire marathon of
music they put forth. I can only hope they keep doing this together for many more years to come, I sure didn’t
get my fill of Béla Fleck and the Flecktones.

|I was there.... the Easter Bunny thing was seriously funny. Bela played along. Great show. Thanks for the recording.
|Hey Thaks a lot !!!!
|FWIW Roy patched his R09 out of my rig and was not running his normal Core Sounds at this show. Therefore, the correct source info for the recording is DPA 4027(ORTF/5'LOC at SBD)->V2->R09.
Thanks for the source corretion, Scott. I've made the correction in the torrent text, but everyone will need to make corrections to their text files to reflect this.
Regardless, this is a very good sounding source and the show was excellent (like most Bela shows)!
|tapers notes: all thanks to Scott,Jerry and Tom for getting this to the masses.the bass solo at the end of the show, might have been the bet one i've ever witnessed, vix or anyone else, fucking totally stunning, these guys just let it go and keep improving after 1 year of the road, amazing. the boulder show the night before was good ,this one's just super amazing....soon the boulder will go up, i gues....hint! hint!....improvisational music at it's best....will we ever see all 5 flecktones tour? c'mon now jeff.......enjoy y'all
|it says 16 bit in the title, but it was recorded 24/44 as stated in the lineage, my way of transferring leads me to burn 24 bit to a cd........fyi
|I saw them earlier this tour in NOLA, and they were great. Can't wait to compare...bill
