This album and the earlier Art Pepper Meets the Rhythm Section are surely the two most important sessions in Pepper's entire recording career. Even though Art had recorded in many big bands, this was the first time he did so as a leader, and every musician in town wanted to be involved. Marty Paich, chosen as arranger, was someone he'd already played with and felt comfortable with. Reflecting later on the date, which went like a dream, Art remarked that he had both chafed at and embraced the constrains a tightly-arranged big band placed on him as a soloist.

It swings!

Reviewer: Mike
I have recently starting exploring jazz and this was a surprise to me. I was expecting more bebop but this album swings with beat, energy, melodies and a real snap in the quality of the mastering and pressing. If you want something with a get off your feet swing and a palpable love of the music this is an album worth buying.
