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.

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.

It's Art Pepper's Birthday & Freebies Abound!

IN HONOR OF ART PEPPER'S BIRTHDAY (SEPT. 1)... The Lovely folks at Concord are releasing the COMPLETE MAIDEN VOYAGE sessions (for download only). The Complete Maiden Voyage Concerts (Live / Los Angeles, CA) by Art Pepper

These 3 nights at the Maiden Voyage in L.A. with George Cables, David Williams, and Carl Burnett were some of the most memorable nights of my life. This was Art's road band at the end of his life. They'd been touring nonstop for about a year, and they were tight. That's why this particular Landscape is an almost mystically telepathic exchange between the guys. For me, Landscape is also one Art's most exciting originals. That first held note always makes the hairs on the back of my neck rise and my heart beat faster. I harangued those poor folks at Concord, because this set was not available from them AS A SET, complete. BUT NOW IT IS! IT IS!
