Art Pepper - Art Pepper Meets the Rhythm Section - 1957 - Contemporary

Reading Art Pepper’s autobiography, Straight Life, I realized that he was one badass, mean, crazy motherf$%&er and not at all in a good way. But the guy made such beautiful sounds and he was articulate. It is difficult to make sense of that. He had a hard and a horrible life. This is a great record he made playing with Miles Davis’ rhythm section. Stunning.
