The Secret Link Between Music and the Structure of the Universe
A fascinating examination of the interconnected mysteries of our music and universe.
"Using his own life as the baseline, Alexander...sweetly riffs on deep connections between music and cosmology...Alexander's account of his own rise from humble beginnings to produce contributions to both cosmology and jazz is as interesting as the marvelous connections he posits between jazz and physics." - Publishers Weekly
