Pepper Adams Anthology

© Gary Carner. Copyright Protected. All rights reserved.



I've decided to edit an anthology of articles about Pepper. It would be a beautiful complement to my other two Pepper books (including the biography, which I've begun) and CDs. Anyone interested in contributing? It needs to be published by Fall, 2015, when another Pepper tour takes place. That means it would have to be finished by the end of 2014. Here's what I have so far:

1. Gary Carner, Rue Serpente (from Jazz Forschung)
2. Gary Carner, overview of Pepper's style from master's thesis
3. John Vana, Pepper Adams' Early Solo Style to 1960
4. Aaron Lington, excerpt from Pepper dissertation


5. Ken Kellett: "I Remember Pepper"
6. Frank Griffith: Reminiscences of Pepper and arranging Rue Serpente and Reflectory
7. Barry Wallenstein: Lyrics to Eight Adams Compositions.
8. Tony Faulkner: A Study of Pepper's Compositions
9. Jim Merod: Overview of Pepper's recordings
10. Bevan Manson: Compositional Aspects of Pepper's Tunes
11. Various previously published articles, interviews, and liner notes.
