Praise for The Music Lesson
"Victor Wooten has been doing things on the bass that nobody dreamed of, and we bass players can't help but hunger for some insight into what inspires him and how he does it. Here, as in his music, he surprises us and gives us more depth than we expected, more of himself than many would dare. This is his journey, his mystical quest, not merely to play the bass but to fully encounter and understand Music itself."--Tony Levin, World Class Bassist with the Peter Gabriel Band "A MUST-READ FOR ANY MUSIC ENTHUSIAST."--Chuck Rainey, World Class Bassist and Recording Artist "THE MUSIC LESSON IS A REVELATION."--Chris Jisi, Senior Contributing Editor, Bass Player magazine "BOTH ENTERTAINING AND ENLIGHTENING."--Guitarnoise.com
