Making the Low Notes

by Bill Harrison

Making the Low Notes: A Life in Music chronicles Bill Harrison’s four-decade journey from bumbling music student to successful professional bass player.

Told with a mixture of wry humor and hard-won wisdom, Making the Low Notes gives readers an insider’s peek into the prosaic life of a working musician. Stories of performances with jazz masters like Dizzy Gillespie, James Moody, Max Roach, and Clark Terry abound in this “honest, intimate, often witty and always insightful journey…”

“A first book worthy of a virtuoso performer.”

“Harrison excels as a writer. His past is brought back to life in gripping detail.”

“Harrison’s memoir captures the wild life of a musician with great flair.”
