    The Spirit of Music is a beautiful story that reads like a love letter to music and its role in the author's life. In this fable-like story, three musicians go to Nashville to join Victor to battle against the "Phasers," whose "music-canceling" headphones destroy music. Only "live" music can restore the spirit of music. I loved one section where the author was feeling bedraggled and unfulfilled by his crazy touring schedule. He talked to his dad and said, "I'm not making time for music." Dad sai The Spirit of Music is a beautiful story that reads like a love letter to music and its role in the author's life.

He talked to his dad and said, "I'm not making time for music." Dad said something to the effect of, "Then you're not making time for you." In this book, music becomes a parable for the world. We can say the same thing about the environment or mother nature. Music is for the greater good.

    Victor Wooten and his cast of characters from The Music Lesson return to help him save music from disappearing. The very real Wooten Family wisdom and magic is lovingly tucked between these pages. ( I know it's real because I've seen and heard it for myself in person!) Fantasy? Fiction? Maybe, or maybe not! Either way... Magic. This book will make you think about music in a whole new light... and that's the whole point.

    i loved the first book, the music lesson, and i kept wanting to love this one but it’s less of a lesson and more an incoherent pile of coincidences, tensionless conflict, and vague complaints about the ‘digital era’ that is so preoccupied with the power of magical thinking to prevail over any foe that it forgoes supplying any actual foe to prevail over. i’m glad he’s having fun writing fantasy but i wish he hadn’t piggybacked on the fantasy structure of the music lesson. i kept waiting for more i loved the first book, the music lesson, and i kept wanting to love this one but it’s less of a lesson and more an incoherent pile of coincidences, tensionless conflict, and vague complaints about the ‘digital era’ that is so preoccupied with the power of magical thinking to prevail over any foe that it forgoes supplying any actual foe to prevail over. i’m glad he’s having fun writing fantasy but i wish he hadn’t piggybacked on the fantasy structure of the music lesson. i kept waiting for more of the good sense insights about music and then the book was over. i literally just talked myself out of another star.

    Always a fan of Victor L. Wooten’s playing, I read The Music Lesson, loved it, and I’ve since reread it more than once. After reading it I’d passed it along as gifts it to several friends. Most of them “got it” but one called it too fuzzy-wuzzy and too flower child for him. Now, having read The Spirit of Music, I get about this book what my friend got about the earlier book. I won’t be giving this one as gifts and I’m not sure I’ll reread it or even keep it on my shelf. Spirit isn’t badly writte Always a fan of Victor L.

I won’t be giving this one as gifts and I’m not sure I’ll reread it or even keep it on my shelf. Spirit isn’t badly written but I think it’ll struggle to find an appreciative audience. I was an engineer so those expressions that English majors use to analyze and describe books were long ago swatted out of my vocabulary. That’s a wordy way to say that I’m at a loss to describe Spirit. If you’re even slightly interested, by all means, give it a read! I am not interested in discouraging anyone from reading a book they may like more than I do.

    This book, unlike the first installment, has no direction. In the Music Lesson we were given 10 elements of music which were weaved into a sort of fantastical story with a fair share of new age "woo woo". Whereas this book is ALL "woo woo" and zero substance. I would say it's a mix between The DaVinci Code and The Secret with a random element of anti digital media propaganda. Even taking that for what it is, the story itself was poorly written. No real stakes, drawn out interactions, cringe wort This book, unlike the first installment, has no direction.

Even taking that for what it is, the story itself was poorly written. No real stakes, drawn out interactions, cringe worthy dialogue, and flat characters. If Victor wants to continue writing in more of a fantasy genre, he needs a ghost writer. Regarding books from musicians, this is tied for me with the Charles Mingus biography as worst of the worst. Lastly, whomever was in charge of hiring the voice actors for the audio book needs fired. Love you Victor, but what in the hell was that?

    Worth the Wait Since reading his first book, I have been waiting for this follow-up book for years. I had it on my wishlist and when it became available for preorder, placed my order. It's a good story and has quite a few examples of interesting connections between music and life. I intend to have my children read it but not sure if I should have them read the first book before this book. This can almost stand on its own, but there may be some unclear references or messages if starting from this Worth the Wait Since reading his first book, I have been waiting for this follow-up book for years.

    28-2021. Wooten’s first book was wonderful, and I’ve recommended it to all my musical friends. This one was a little too fanciful and mystical, without the wonder of the first book. I see where he was going with it, but it left me flat.

    Victor takes us on another journey with Michael and friends into the spirit and life of Music. Is it a parable? Is it a warning? Is it a call to action? Yep!

    Didn’t care for the authors voice or his alarmism about the state of music. Only made it through about 2 chapters and then gave up.
