BELOW find an exceptionally relaxed and swinging version of Art's Y.I. Blues (also sometimes called Untitled #34). It will be on my next release, "Unreleased Art Pepper Vol. VII, Osaka 1980." Featuring George Cables, Tony Dumas, Carl Burnett. (pictured: George & Art in Japan).
I promise I will upload a free download soon, next month, in fact.
Meanwhile some &^%$#@ has released a bootleg version of my planned next release: The Aforementioned Osaka '80 concert
PLEASE WAIT FOR MINE!
My double cd will be cheaper, my liner notes more extensive and revealing, and there will be at least a dozen great photos, maybe more. And of course the audio quality will be incomparably superior, thanks to the incomparable Wayne Peet.
My Widow's Taste release will be in August. I don't want to rush it because I want it to be as perfect as I can make it. So listen to this lovely (not-yet-remastered) track and please please wait for the rest. P.S. This set will include a gorgeous solo by George Cables and the only recorded live performance of Art playing "Winter Moon."
