Outside the Jukebox
- How I Turned My Vintage Music Obsession into My Dream Gig
- By: Scott Bradlee
- Narrated by: Scott Bradlee
- Length: 6 hrs and 35 mins
With student loan debt piling up and no lucrative gigs around the corner, Scott Bradlee found himself in a situation all too familiar to struggling musicians and creative professionals, unsure whether he should use the little income he had to pay the rent on his basement apartment on the fringes of New York City or to avoid defaulting on his loans. It was under these desperate circumstances that Bradlee began experimenting, applying his passion for jazz, ragtime, and doo-wop styles to contemporary hits by singers like Macklemore and Miley Cyrus - and suddenly an idea was born.

Beyond any expectations.
First of all, one big applause to Audible that gave me the opportunity to get in touch with a book that I exactly wanted for just one pound, and biggest applause for the autor that I didnt know what to expect, 'couse he literally blown me away.
English is not my native language, Serbian is, and it was much easier for me to just listen and imagine every situation, becouse reading a book would took me much more time to just found forein words to me, and get back to them lost in thread of the story. This way I could easy guess what it means in the sentence and for the first time it was wonderful expirience, and I will definetlly keep on listening the books over your chanel shurelly.
The story about Jukebox was great. The concept was toughtful, and in the end, I end up with a expirience more just watching from "my chair". As a young artist and producer, I already had my favorite chapters, at first reading, due that I recognized myself in them, and this will vey much likelly influence on my carier.
I would recomend this book to the leaders, visionars, future "right hands" of big artists who knows the music busines, and whants to get more to the music industry.
This is a lifetime story I wouldnt get from anyone.
Respect to Your wisdom, guts and commitment. Spread your arragements, to stop globalisation overproduced and overedited music and show the world the roots of pure entertaintment with just your love for the music that you carry within.

Hope you'll now have more time to dig your own music and wake up the composer in yourself. THATS WHERE THE REAL MAGIC IS.
