More Pepper @ the Vanguard
My dear friend Ken Laster directed us to a biography of Art Pepper in a comment on my last post. I can't wait to read it. Pepper was, as my Grandmother would have said, "a piece of work." Heroin took a big bite out of his career, and that is a loss to all of us who love his music. But it is what it is. And what it is is great. Here is another selection from the Village Vanguard box set.
