Hide Profile

Bhumibol Adulyadej (b. 1927) King of Thailand, was crowned in 1946. Born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and educated in the United States and Switzerland, he learned to play a number of reed instruments including the clarinet and soprano saxophone. His chief areas of musical interest are early jazz and 1940's-style swing; he was influenced by Benny Goodman, Jack Teagarden, and Lionel Hampton, with whom he participated in jam sessions. His own compositions reflect his interest in jazz and swing, but with strong influences of traditional Thai music. The collection consists of a variety of his compositions (some in manuscript, and some printed or photocopied), along with a small quantity of correspondence, clippings, and other documents.
