YELLOW VINYL - DIE CUT JACKET - DOWNLOAD CARD INCLUDED
From his early recordings with Stan Kenton’s and Shorty Rogers’ bands and sessions with Chet Baker, Henry Mancini or Quincy Jones, to his own recordings—like classics made for Contemporary and Galaxy Records (The Art Pepper Quartet and Art Pepper Meets the Rhythm Section)—Art Pepper built a legacy of recordings that can only be described as legendary.
Thankfully, he also left us a narrative, tracing the history of his life and the roadmap with details of his great recordings in the shape of the book, Straight Life (DaCapo, 1979), which Art and Laurie authored together. The third volume of Neon Art features three tunes drawn from the unissued performances of his 1981 tour of Japan. Side one features Art’s composition, “Make A List (Make A Wish),” while side two features “Everything Happens To Me” and “Arthur’s Blues.” Cut at Capitol Records by Ron McMaster and pressed on neon yellow vinyl in a see-through jacket, this third volume is aimed at both the longtime Art Pepper aficionado and collector, and to those just coming to know Art’s work. It’s an entry point into the multifaceted, colorful world of Art Pepper!
