Today was recorded slightly more than a year after Art Pepper decided once and for all that he would devote the rest of his life, which he had made a monumental shambles, to exercising his incredible musical talent. He had done some stunning playing since his return to recording in 1975 after a 15-year absence. Despite the fact that the producer gave Pepper a rhythm section with which he had never before worked, Today represented a quantum leap in consistency and inventiveness. The admiration and support of Stanley Cowell, Cecil McBee, and Roy Haynes inspired him to an exalted level of performance.

with Stanley Cowell, Cecil McBee, Roy Haynes, Kenneth Nash
