Overview

Recorded in late 1956 and released in early 1957, The Art Pepper Quartet is back for its 60th anniversary. Mastered from the original mono tapes, the album's original 7 classics are joined by 5 bonus tracks – alternate takes of "Pepper Pot" and "Blues at Twilight", and a journey through the creation of "Val's Pal" (including previously unheard incomplete takes and false starts). New liner notes from Art's widow Laurie Pepper trace the story of this record, from its conception to this new issue. A gem on all fronts.
