Basement Vibes


The initial 2002 CD offering of the SGJO, this was the "first herd" (to borrow from Woody), presenting a mix of compositions and arranged standards by Scott. It features the legendary Marcus Belgrave on trumpet. There are few copies on CDBaby. If you want this rare album, snatch it up quickly!



Jazz 101: A Collection of Humorous Student Quotes From Essays


Compiled by Scott Gwinnell


As a college professor, I collected funny quotations from student papers in a gen-ed jazz history class. This coffee table book, available from Lulu press, is funny to everyone from jazz musicians to tone-deaf persons. It is truly a hilarious and frightening commentary on student knowledge.
