Gunther Schuller articles, lectures, liner notes

12 posts in this topic

Opening this topic to identify articles, lectures or liner notes by Gunther Schuller. Here are some I have found on the web:

- article on Thelonious Monk in the Jazz Review here https://jazzstudiesonline.org/resource/jazz-review-vol1-no1-nov-1958

- "Sonny Rollins and the Challenge of Thematic Improvisation" here https://jazzstudiesonline.org/resource/sonny-rollins-and-challenge-thematic-improvisation

- 3 part Tanner Lecture  (Jazz a Historical Perspective / Duke Ellington / Charles Mingus) here https://tannerlectures.utah.edu/_documents/a-to-z/s/schuller97.pdf

- article on Sarah Vaughan here https://jazzprofiles.blogspot.com/2020/02/sarah-vaughan-divine-one-by-gunther.html

Are there other material available online, or that can be shared ?

Thanks

You might try contacting his son George Schuller at schulldog@pipeline.com.  Perhaps he can help you out.

I’ve got a few CD’s, I’ll have to check.

I got to hear him conduct twice (programs featuring his own works), and give pre-concert lectures in both cases.

Got a couple autographs too, iirc.

Thanks for the tips.

Will contact his son to find out if there are some "archives" available and report back if I get an answer.

I forgot to mention I have "Musings", "Early Jazz" and "The Swing Era".

Will check the liner notes of "The Ledgendary Buster Smith", thanks.

Looks like the full Buster Smith essay was included as an insert or something for the LP issue. The Koch CD reprints it in full, though. Not sure how hard to get that one is, but it's a great record, well worth paying a little extra for.

I contacted George Schuller thanks to the info provided above and he was kind enough to inform me of a new site which has been set up to collect information on Gunther Schuller's works: https://guntherschullersociety.org/
