Bela Fleck and the Flecktones


Former Flecktone sax man Jeff Coffin jumped ship for the Dave Matthews Band a while back, thereby opening the door for the current reunion tour with founding harmonica player Howard Levy. A dramatic reinvention like this is probably for the best, since their last few albums have seen them disappearing down the rabbit hole of their own virtuosity, and their oily new-age jazz fusion is almost always stronger when they keep the themes simple.
