Grammy Award winner Victor Wooten’s inspiring parable of the importance of music and the threats that it faces in today’s world. A VINTAGE ORIGINAL

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.

INSPIRATIONAL: For anyone who is musical—and that is all of us—The Spirit of Music speaks to the utter necessity of music in our lives and seeks to reconnect us with one of the fundamental bonds that brings us all together.

CHARISMATIC AUTHOR: Victor Wooten is the best bass player in the world, named the best player of all time by Rolling Stone magazine. A natural teacher and communicator, he has spoken at many schools and businesses as a motivational speaker.

DEVOTED FOLLOWING: Victor’s earlier book, The Music Lesson, has sold more than 140,000 copies. As a world-renowned musician, he tours extensively with Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, as well as with his brothers in a separate band. His fans are legion.

VICTOR WOOTEN, now a five-time Grammy winner, is a founding member of the super-group Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. Victor has also become widely known for his own Grammy nominated solo recordings and tours. Among other accomplishments he is a skilled naturalist, teacher, author, magician, and acrobat and has won every major award given to a bass guitarist including being voted Bassist of the Year in Bass Player Magazine’s readers’ poll three times (the only person to win it more than once.) In 2011, Rolling Stone magazine voted Victor one of the Top Ten Bassists of all time. Victor has been heralded as “the Michael Jordan of the bass” and “one of the most fearless musicians on the planet.”

“[A] bit like Carlos Castaneda’s shamanist tales, a bit like tween fiction, a bit like websites on, say, sonic healing through principles of sacred geometry and—at its best—an enactment of epiphanies told in the ping-pong dialogue…. It’s a book that stands happily against traditional music pedagogy and canned notions of achievement. This is to its great credit.”  —Ben Ratliff, The Washington Post

“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
