Album Notes and Credits
Personnel: Art Pepper (alto saxophone); Russ Freeman, Carl Perkins (piano); Ben Tucker (bass); Chuck Flores (drums).
Art Pepper was one of the world's greatest alto saxophonists. Though firmly rooted in the jazz tradition, Pepper possessed a strongly unique sensibility, and his career ups and downs (largely due to drug addiction) never seemed to affect his ability to play with precision, clarity, and insight.
This album, recorded in 1956 and 1957, is the second part of a two-volume set released by Aladdin Records, comprising the saxophonist's full body of recorded material for this label. Combining bebop with West Coast cool, MODERN ART documents memorable performances of standards, including the luscious ballad "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered," and the steamy "Summertime." Pepper's version of this latter track is replete with a thick, almost haunting, reverb effect. Other standouts are the stripped-down versions of "Blues In" and "Blue Out," two tunes that feature Pepper's lamenting sax as it soliloquizes over a simple walking bass line.
Artist Overview
Art Pepper's distinctive tone and style on the alto saxophone--warm, passionate, and rhythmically incisive--made him one of the premier players of the post-Bird generation, despite a well-publicized drug addiction. Pepper's classic sides from the '50s are equalled by his triumphant return to form in the late '70s, when he became a symbol of triumph over adversity, playing with furious eloquence and a searingly emotional tone in quite diverse contexts.
