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.

A FREEBIE FOR CHRISTMAS


COMPANIONS: Straight Life & ART

Published in 1979, Straight Life was the story of Art Pepper. He was a deeply troubled, madly gifted artist, an addict. Art told me his story, I wrote it down, I fell in love, and we got married. Straight Life, according to enthusiastic reviews in The New Yorker, Time, The Village Voice, etc. became
(and remains) a classic. Now also available for KINDLENOOKIPAD, ETC. (CHEAP) 

In Straight Life Art cast himself as a lost, desperate genius and me, at the end, as his angel of rescue. During our marriage we worked successfully together to enact that story. But I was no angel, and we rescued each other. ART is a memoir of that marriage. This is a paperback book, 382 pages, 100 photos, and with a complete index: Read Wonderful Reviews in Harper's, etc.
