Every month

Every month I'll post a new "taste" of Art Pepper's music as a FREE DOWNLOAD. These tastes are given away because they are "unreleasable" by virtue of the recording being cut off at beginning or end or by brief audio problems that occurred in the recording process.


I'll also post occasional journal entries including updates on new releases.

JOURNAL: Just a little taste of my life...

   Toooo busy.  I need to have a life and friends:  friends have been dying, getting sick, reminding me to live in the world while I'm here and not just live in work, and so....  Made the brilliant decision (sorry fans!) to postpone the release of the two disc set (Osaka, November 1980: George Cables, Tony Dumas, Carl Burnett) until end of October 2012.
   I'm also working toward finishing the 3rd and nearly final draft of my memoir of my life with Art.  I figured out where I'm at in the work and what's left to do and how long that ought to take.  Based on how it's been going, I should be done by around September of this year, and then out to agents, etc.
   A spectacular release of the vinyl single coming from Omnivore very soon, though.  (I love it when other people do all the work. ) I'll keep you up to date.

Meanwhile, here's a snapshot from that 1980 Japanese tour.  I took about 200 photos.  Every one of Art shows him happy and smiling, just like this (Kyushu)

Oh, well, and P.S.
