...that this is one of my top ten favorites of Art's live performances (you can hear me shrieking at the end). The track has been released before, but I won't go into details for all kinds of reasons. It's free. I love you guys. Look for something brand new in December. Promise.
Just Enter zero in the price box. Of course, you can always donate to the cause.
(If you'll look over to your right, you'll see a poll entitled: For 2013 release. I had to close the poll after 14 votes since blogger doesn't seem to have a way for me to view results of ongoing voting!!!!)
I'm installing another (3rd party) poll (below). If you've voted before, no need to do it again. I've got your responses now.
I'm thinking of releasing a DVD which will include some Art Pepper live performances. The audio quality might not be as good as some of my better releases (Croydon, Stuttgart, Ronnie's) but I'll get Wayne Peet to do the best he can with it, and you'll get to see a great live performance of at least ten tunes.
Also, it's going to be more expensive than the usual release. I still haven't reckoned up the costs of manufacture and distribution. So I don't know whether it'll be worth it to any of us to do it. It's bound to cost AT LEAST half again what I've been charging.
So What I'd like to know is how much do you want to SEE previously unreleased and mostly unseen Art Pepper LIVE.
Please vote while I do all my research.
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.
THEY'RE TOO STUNNING TO HIDE AWAY IN MY FILES AS YOU'LL SOON SEE.
I'll also post occasional journal entries including updates on new releases.
