Victor L. Wooten has won five Grammy Awards and two Nashville Music Awards for Bassist of the Year, and is an original member of the Grammy Award-winning ensemble Bela Fleck & the Flecktones.
Grammy Award-winning bassist/composer Wooten (www.victorwooten.com), perhaps best known for his work with Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, shares an allegorical tale of his discovery of the power of music. Narrated by the author, the book centers on the first-person protagonist's series of humbling encounters with a mysterious teacher and spiritual adviser named Michael. Perhaps inspired by the similarly semiautobiographical, mystical tales of Carlos Castaneda, Wooten offers a lesson in personal growth with music as the central metaphor. The primary advantage of the audiobook to the printed edition is the inclusion of original music composed by Wooten, which functions as a backdrop to the spoken text. Recommended for Wooten's fans and those liking jazz and jam bands as well as for listeners interested in metaphysics and spiritual discovery.-Christopher Rager, Pasadena, CA (c) Copyright 2010.
