About Stu Buchanan Real Book

Project 2018-01-25 09:40:19 UTC

Dearest friends, whanau, and Stu's fans,

I would like to let you know exciting news about "Stu Buchanan Real Book"!

As you know, I have been working on compiling and editing "Stu Buchanan Real Book" for last few years and FINALLY FINISHED IT! To be honest, some of you probably remember, but, I started this project when he was still alive.

Many coffee visits and phone calls later the previous project "Hey! What's the Time?" album was completed and released in 2013, but sadly, Stu passed away in 2014 June. It very saddens me that he won't be able to see the published version of his book. However, I still would like to print them out.

I see his photo every day and reminiscence about him. I found that lovely thing about this book is that you can hear his phrases and ideas through his compositions. I hope you will enjoy this book as much as I do. 

I have compiled and edited 41 tunes of Stu's compositions all in concert key, Bb and Eb keys. The book is around 181 pages that include some of the old photos of Stu and his friends, and Stu’s quotes. I surveyed in my circle of friends, and quite a lot of people told me that they would love to have this book printed (physical copy to put in their bookshelf) rather than just a PDF version. Some of the people are keen to have both electric version and physically printed book. 

Stu was a beloved local jazz legend and to have his compositions book could be a healing process for many who have been touched by him when he was alive. I also would love to see other fellow jazz musicians playing his compositions at their gigs. 

In order to complete the process of physical printing, I need to find some fundings. Please help me raise some money so that I can print them out. I will only print out the amount of order I got. Please do not forget to order this time because this is the only time I will print off physical copies. 

 

[Cost of the Books]

You can help me by simply pre-order the books which is available from 4 following options:

• Physical hard copy - $40 each

• Physical copy + PDF - $50 

• PDF - $20 each

• Buy 10 copies and get 1 free (good set for your classroom or your band) - $400

The book is 181 pages long, comes with the concert, Bb and Eb key in one book. 

For the PDF version, I will make sure the number on the index will link(collate) to the actual pages, so if you are using iPhone or iPad on the gig, it'll be easy to navigate with your colleagues or students. 

* if you are feeling generous, you can donate me an extra $5 and I will send warm smile, hugs and a good karma virtually x 

[Book launch party and delivery]

I will have a book launch party in Christchurch. You can pick up your books at the venue. (the location and date to be confirmed) If you would like me to send your book(s), please add the postage fee to the “reward”?  

 

P.S. I have attached a draft copy version below. 

P.S.S. I will exclusively print out the numbers of pre-ordered copies which has been ordered at PledgeMe Campaign site. Can you please make sure to share this link with all your friends and whanau, so that they won't miss out? Can you please help people whom less likely to use social media, too?

Aroha hui, 

Nanako Sato

The People Behind Stu Buchanan Real Book

Picture?type=square&width=50&height=50 Nanako Sato Project admin

Stu Buchanan was my mentor, friend and colleague. He was genuinely lovely to everybody, and he touched our hearts. 

I have been his copyist and have working on compiling his original compositions. We had recorded some of his tunes in 2013 before he passed away in 2014. It took me for a while, but I have compiled and edited 41 original tunes 181 pages long book. (Concert, Bb and Eb keys are combined in the book) I have included some of the old photos, too. People who communicated with Stu will be able to recognise some of the images in the book. 

However, while the product is ready, I do not have funding to print them out. I believe through this funding, more people will know about the book, and I will be able to see how many I should be printing off. 

Please order now if you want to buy a physical copy print of "Stu Buchanan Real Book" through PledgeMe!

This is the only time I will print off the physical copy, so get in quick!
