Art Pepper Neon Art, Volume Three
All tracks previously unissued
Recorded live from Art's concert tour of Japan in 1981
In cooperation with Art's widow, Laurie Pepper and her label, Widow's Taste Music, Omnivore Recordings is proud to release the third volume in a series of previously unissued live recordings by Art Pepper, called Neon Art.
From his early recordings with Stan Kenton's and Shorty Rogers' bands and sessions with Chet Baker, Henry Mancini or Quincy Jones, to his own recordings, such as classics made for Contemporary and Galaxy Records (The Art Pepper Quartet and Art Pepper Meets the Rhythm Section), Art Pepper built a legacy of recordings that can only be described as legendary. Thankfully, he also left us a narrative, tracing the history of his life and the roadmap with details of his great recordings in the form of the book, "Straight Life" (DaCapo, 1979), which Art and Laurie authored together.
The third volume of Neon Art features three tunes drawn from the unissued performances of his 1981 tour of Japan. Volume Three rolls out the brilliant "Make A List (Make A Wish)" on side one, coupled with "Everything Happens To Me" and "Arthur's Blues" on side two.
