Julie Nathanson Coryell
Birth: Aug. 7, 1947
New York County (Manhattan)
New York, USA
Death: May 10, 2009
Dutchess County
New York, USA

Jazz Historian. Though she made contributions to several of her then-husband's albums, she will be remembered for her 1978 book "Jazz-Rock Fusion: The People, The Music". Raised in New York City, she met singer-guitarist Larry Coryell early in his career. The couple married in 1968; Julie appeared on the covers of "Coryell" and "Lady Coryell", sang back-up on some early Coryell records, and served as Larry's manager. She wrote the songs "Spaces (Infinite)" and "Chris" for the 1970 recording "Spaces", an early landmark of "fusion", the genre bridging the gap between jazz and rock. Thru the 1970s, she conducted the 58 in-depth interviews (some with artists like Miles Davis, who rarely spoke to writers) that form the basis of her book, which was re-released in 2000. It is still considered the standard study of fusion. After her 1986 divorce, she lived in Woodstock, New York, and founded the Woodstock Experimental Writer's Theater. She moved to Hyde Park, New York, in 2003. (bio by: Bob Hufford)
