"I had a lot of lessons with Bill Vacchiano, but that evening he taught me the things I have reflected on most as the years have passed. If your internal life is happy, you are happy. Pay attention to the loved ones around you. I went over there for a one-hour lesson, but instead he gave me more than an hour could possibly hold. Thinking about that night, about me and him in his lonely house, still brings tears to my eyes.”--from the Foreword by Wynton Marsalis
“I have just finished reading Last Stop, Carnegie Hall and there are still tears in my eyes as I remember my experiences with Bill, tears of joy at reading statements of simple wisdom, musical anecdotes and life lessons; there are as well, tears of happiness that Shook’s work introduces the public to a man who affected the musical shape of nearly all the major orchestras in North America, South America, and even Europe.”--Ronald Romm, Professor of Trumpet, founding member, Canadian Brass
“The book is rich with stories, musical examples, remembrances, and photographs. It represents the most original research to date on Vacchiano.”--Anne Hardin, co-author of Inside John Haynie’s Studio
