Art Pepper deserves to be remembered for his artistic achievements rather than for the turbulence of his life or the sensationalism of his autobiography. Fortunately Lester Koenig of Contemporary was always able to record him during Art's best days, and with the best possible rhythm sections. For this occasion he hired what was then the Miles Davis team (Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb), with Conte Candoli to share the front line on three tracks. Pepper and Candoli were then working together regularly at the Lighthouse. Though the alto sax was his principal outlet, he occasionally doubled on tenor, as is demonstrated effectively on the title number, an absorbing and passionate blues.

with Conte Candoli, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, Jimmy Cobb
