Notes:
Art Peppers 10th album as a leader, recorded on a January 19, 1957 session with the at the time Miles Davis rhythm section, pianist Red Garland, bassist Paul Chambers (3) and drummer "Philly" Joe Jones.
Although today reviewed as a Pepper classic, according to legend Art Pepper was only informed about the session the same morning and only met with the rhythm section when arriving unprepared at the studio - with a saxophone in bad shape.

Amazing sound. I have some vintage Blue Note, Prestige o Impulse Lps and this could be even better.

I concur that it's quiet, flat, and engaging. I have some very expensive vinyl and this $18 WaxTime pressing sounds great. It sounds better than some of my $35 PurePleasure disks and is worlds better than my BlueNote 75 series albums that cost about the same. It must have been very well recorded to start. Hard to believe it's from 1954. I feel no need whatsoever to acquire a better edition.

this is one of the best pressings of this album. A mate has the AP Release and believes this is better. Very happy with the SQ, very dynamic and quiet.

Ordered this by mistake. I thought I was getting an OJC pressing. Surprisingly, very quiet, flat, and engaging. I bet it could be more dynamic, but, particularly for those on a budget and wanting to build a listening library, this is a good listen musically and sonically. (My system is quite discerning, if you're curious.)
