2 COMPLETE ALBUMS ON 2-CD SET
Plus 12 BONUS TRACKS

This edition presents all the existing master takes by Art Pepper in a quartet format with pianist Russ Freeman. The material consists of the album "Modern Art" (Intro Records ILP-606), the only two quartet tracks from "The Return of Art Pepper" (Jazz West JWLP-10), the complete LP "The Art Pepper Quartet" (Tampa Records RS-100), and an obscure 1952 Savoy session that constitutes their earliest quartet date.
All existing alternate takes from the Savoy session, which only previously appeared on a long out of print Japanese edition, have been added here as a bonus.
