Among the many gems from Art Pepper’s superlative discography was a January 19, 1957 studio date in which the altoist fronted a quartet featuring the rhythm section from Miles Davis’ first great quintet (1955-1957): pianist Red Garland, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Philly Joe Jones. Ten exquisite tracks were recorded in a period of just five hours, nine of which made their way onto the album Art Pepper Meets The Rhythm Section. Two compositions were written at the date: “Waltz Me Blues” (which was co-composed by Pepper and Chambers) and “Red Pepper Blues” (that was penned by Garland). The other tracks consisted of versions of jazz standards. The quartet’s chemistry and the sublime quality of the music recorded belie the numerous complications that occurred prior to the session. Art had never previously played with any of the members of The Rhythm Section, and never would again with the exception of Paul Chambers.
