Art Pepper, one of the most prolific and gifted alto saxophonists in jazz, brought his quartet: Milcho Leviev, piano; George Mraz, bass; and Al Foster, drums, to Fat Tuesday’s, the number one jazz club in New York City in the early ‘80s, shortly before his untimely death of a brain hemorrhage in 1982. This recording is an excellent example of late-period Pepper, preserving an incredibly live atmosphere and with a sound balance reproducing all the four players to an acceptable standard. It acts as a solid reminder of the reasons for the altoist’s positive and lasting contribution, which is far and away more significant than the reputation he earned on the wrong side of the law.
