The first edition of the Bassist’s Bible was reviewed by Bass Player Magzine a couple of months after it was first published. Here is text of the review.
Tim Boomer With Mick Berry And Chaz Bufe: The Bassists Bible
BY JONATHAN HERRERA
November 1, 2009
This cool new book seeks to describe all that the average player will need to know to have a workable familiarity with nearly every common musical style. Each style is listed alphabetically, and each entry includes a historical background, hallmarks of the groove, gear, chord progressions, and tempos typical of the style, and a variety of musical examples reinforced by the included play-along CD. Naturally, mainstream styles like rock, blues, and R&B, but so are Klezmer, ethnic wedding dances, and Afro-Cuban. The Bassist’s Bible will prove useful on many a working pros reference shelf.
