The Fox Theater date is a historic night for Bela Fleck & The Flecktones - for the first time in almost 20 years, the other founding member of the Flecktones, Howard Levy, will be flying in from Chicago to play with the band for that one night only. Bela Fleck & The Flecktones’ Jingle All The Way, produced by Fleck, and the first holiday collection of the Flecktones' blazing 20-year career, morphs traditional music and standards into expressive, often highly composed soundscapes. A major collaborative effort between Bela, bassist Victor Wooten, Future Man (drumitar and acoustic percussion) and Jeff Coffin (woodwinds), the album features everything from the sparkling banjo-harmonic arrangements of "Christmas Time Is Here" and "River" (Blue is one of Bela's favorite albums; this is the first Joni Mitchell song he's ever recorded) and a Tuvan-inspired, worldbeat performance of "What Child Is This / Dyngyladai" to fiery, virtuosic renditions of "Sleigh Ride" and "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies."
