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) – adolf garlic Jul 7 '15 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. – user546 Jul 14 '15 at 1:47
  • @WheatWilliams, do you have any interviews recorded? Text, audio, video, whatever. – PaulD Jul 30 '15 at 13:27
  • 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). – user546 Jul 30 '15 at 17:19
