Red Vinyl! Mastered by Ron McMaster at Capitol Records!
Contains Unissued Performances At Parnell's in Seattle, January 1981 - "Red Car" and "Blues For Blanche"!


By the 1950s Art Pepper was recognized as one of the leading alto saxophonists in jazz, epitomized by his finishing second only to Charlie Parker as Best Alto Saxophonist in the Down Beat magazine Readers Poll of 1952. Along with Chet Baker, Gerry Mulligan and Shelly Manne, Pepper is often associated with the musical movement known as West Coast Jazz.

Just in time for what would have been jazz-great Art Pepper's 87th birthday (September 1st), and in cooperation with Art's widow, Laurie Pepper and her label, Widow's Taste Music, Omnivore Recordings is proud to release the first 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 - like classics made for Contemporary and Galaxy Records (The Art Pepper Quartet and Art Pepper Meets the Rhythm Section) - Art Pepper built a legacy of recording 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 shape of the book, Straight Life (DaCapo, 1979), which Art and Laurie authored together.

The first volume of Neon Art features two tunes drawn from the unissued performances at Parnell's in Seattle, WA on January 28, 1981. Side one features a workout on Art's composition, "Red Car", while side two features "Blues For Blanche," also a Pepper-composed track. Cut at Capitol Records by Ron McMaster and pressed on red vinyl in a see-through jacket, this first volume is aimed at both the longtime Art Pepper aficionado and collector, and to those just coming to know Art's work. It's an entry point into the multifaceted, colorful world of Art Pepper.

“Our mission is to introduce unreleased and unheard Art to people who love him, as well as to people who don’t yet know him,” says Laurie Pepper. “Art hated the idea that people put jazz in a pigeonhole. He wanted to make people forget the categories and ‘make them open up and listen.’”

"Volume One has Art blasting away, occasionally honking, and deep into the groove on “Blues for Blanche.” Burnett and Milcho are able foils for Pepper’s intensity. I’ve always dug Leviev’s pushing Art to the limit, and his bluesy lines here swing hard. Watching the red vinyl spinning on my glass turntable platter while the fellows are kicking in is a gas… (Immediately I also noticed the quality of the remastering by Ron McMaster as well, as the club experience is ably re-created.)" - Robbie Gerson, audaud.com, 4.5/5 Stars!!
