I really enjoyed readin the words of many musical greats in this book, especially Steve Vai!!
Read about the personal experiences of Quincy Jones, Steve Vai, Branford Marsalis, Joe Zawinul, John Scofield, Jan Hammer, Ernie Watts, Bill Frisell, Al Di Meola, Aerosmith, Paula Cole, and lots more! These are all graduates of Berklee College of Music, and they have plenty to say about the music industry, and all the valuable lessons learned along the way. Ed Hazell, the freelance jazz critic, notes 'No other book of interviews brings you closer to what it's really like to make music for a living. These lively conversations offer unique insights into the practical and artistic decisions that musicians face, and gives a better appreciation of the musician's art and craft.' The Grammy-nominated Author and Educator Jim Ferguson writes that 'This collection of interviews reflects a profound contribution to the realm of jazz and pop music--filled with insights into what makes a professional musician tick.' A unique perspective on such a varied cast of music industry superstars.
