Intimate involvement in a variety of musical genres has been a feature of Gunther Schuller's professional life. He has performed (on horn) with renowned orchestras and significant jazz musicians. He is well recognized as a composer for producing pieces that incorporate elements of jazz and classical music, albeit these compositions make up a small portion of his body of work. He was the New England Conservatory's president while working as a teacher. He has also worked as a record producer, editor, writer, conductor, arranger, and advocate.
The first volume of Schuller's memoirs spans the years from 1925, the year he was born, up until roughly 1960. The book opens with a short introduction by the author and the opening article "The Musician as Mediator" by Joan Shelley Rubin.
