Ken Hanna, Macumba Suite printed music (?)
Posted in the Stan Kenton Forum

(So far I have spoken with Ken Poston of the LA Jazz Institute, Bob Curnow of Sierra Music, and Dr. Arturo Ortega of the UNT Jazz Library)
Hello, my name is Mike Hyziak, and I am a recent graduate of new York University wth my Master's in Jazz Studies (composition). I am doing some research into the composition process of various jazz composers, and at this particular moment, my focus is on Ken Hanna (who wrote for the Stan Kenton Orchestra at various times
throughout his career). There is one specific composition I am trying to find the music for, which is his "Macumba Suite" extended composition.
So far I've had no luck with tracking this composition down. I was doing a search for copyright information through google, and came across this forum about Kenton summer jazz clinics. And I noticed that some people mentioned they rehearsed/played the Macumba Suite.
If ANYONE could give me any information I could use to further my research (if someone should know what the piece was copyrighted under, or an estate/any sort of contact information, distributor) I would greatly appreciate it. My ultimate goal is to study this music, for its compositional value, and gain a deeper appreciation for its originality.
If anyone has any information that may help, please email me at:
Thank you for your time.
