The complete original Art Pepper album Intensity (Contemporary S7607), recorded in a quartet format. This was Pepper’s last album as a leader before entering prison to serve his longest drug-related sentence. (After a short session as a sidemen in January 1961 he entered San Quentin and wouldn’t record again until May 1964. He wouldn’t lead another studio date until 1973.)

As a bonus, a complete studio session made three years before Intensity. Although the album was recorded in a quintet setting, Pepper is still the only horn. Both the saxophonist’s intensity and his artistic integrity (his real trademarks) are evident throughout this outstanding CD.
