We may not realize it as we listen to the soundtrack of our lives through tiny earbuds, but music and all that it encompasses is disappearing all around us. In this fable-like story three musicians from around the world are mysteriously summoned to Nashville, the Music City, to join together with Victor to do battle against the "Phasers," whose blinking "music-cancelling" headphones silence and destroy all musical sound. Only by coming together, connecting, and making the joyful sounds of immediate, "live" music can the world be restored to the power and spirit of music.
A VINTAGE ORIGINAL
“Wooten, bassist for Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, delivers a remarkable fable in which music is dying. . . . This allegorical foray into the power of music is both heartfelt and wildly imaginative. Music lovers will adore this sparkling manifesto.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Part exhortation, part New Age–ish memoir, part philosophical treatise, Wooten’s book is full of surprising and illuminating lessons. . . . [An] always rewarding delight for music fans of a mystical bent.” —Kirkus Reviews

A continuation of his first remarkable book, The Music Lesson, this book easily stands alone as a source of knowledge and enjoyment. If you can read both books, I would suggest starting with the first, but either way there will be QUESTIONS. The generation of these questions in ways we must apply to ourselves, our relationships and the world around us will almost certainly be a product of engaging with The Spirit of Music.
In so many ways, Victor Wooten is good for the planet - but so are you and I, a truth this book can help us re-cognize and re-create. Read it if you have questions about music, life, the universe and everything. More importantly, read it if you don’t believe you have questions and think you have all the answers. Read it if you have fallen too far into the production or mechanics of Music or Life and are missing the Spirit.
