This is from Victor Wooten concert, he and band "Bela Fleck" performs their song Sinister Minister.

I believe this part, that's starts from 3:26, heavily inherits from classical music.

And I do like to know what classical music is this.

  • Although this doesn't answer the question (hence a comment) I was pleasantly surprised to find that Shazam does seem to support classical music at long last (but no doubt will still not work with live music) Jul 7, 2015 at 18:29

This sounds to be based on Bach's Preludium in C Major, perhaps best known as the accompaniment to Charles Gounod's Ave Maria.

  • Interestingly enough at the time that this recording was released I was a music journalist and a personal friend of Bela Fleck and Victor Wooten, in Nashville, Tennessee. I was not aware of any "classical connection" to this piece. Thanks for this very interesting observation.

  • @WheatWilliams, do you have any interviews recorded? Text, audio, video, whatever.

  • I used to have the printed article I wrote about Victor Wooten on my website. I'll see about putting it back up. Unfortunately I did not keep the audio interviews (recorded onto analog cassette tape).
