For a week at the end of November, former Miles Davis guitarist Mike Stern (pictured) and current Bela Fleck bassist Victor will play a week’s worth of funk and fusion at New York’s Iridium club. Earlier this year the pair (with drummer Dennis Chambers) played a week of dates at Yoshi’s in Oakland, Calif., sold out every performance and dazzled Bay Area fans with electric improvisations. For the Iridium dates, Stern and Wooten are bringing precision stickman Dave Weckl into the fold (Chambers will not be present) and have also enlisted saxophonist Bob Franceschini to make the group a quartet. The shows will run between Nov. 26 and Dec. 1. The Iridium is at 1650 Broadway at 51st St., call (212) 582-2121 for tickets and reservations.
