Bass Player Magazine | September 2008

Mel Brown is not just a top-level bassist with everyone from George Benson to Marc Anthony; he’s also on the leading edge when it comes to the business of music and networking. Brown attacks his subject in an enthusiastic, clear, and direct manner. Step one, “Choose the Life,” is the most intense and revealing, with Brown addressing such candid topics as the “myth of making it,” living opposite society, road life, and defining your own success. Brown also includes his enhanced-CD profile in the back cover. Given the shaky state of music biz, Mel’s method is a perfectly timed tool for getting or staying ahead. (CJ)
