Art Pepper - Art Pepper Meets the Rhythm Section (LP)
Among the many gems from Art Pepper’s superlative discography was a January 19, 1957 studio date in which the altoist fronted a quartet featuring the rhythm section from Miles Davis’ first great quintet (1955-1957): pianist Red Garland, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Philly Joe Jones. Ten exquisite tracks were recorded in a period of just five hours, nine of which made their way onto the album Art Pepper Meets The Rhythm Section. The quartet’s chemistry and the sublime quality of the music recorded belie the numerous complications that occurred prior to the session. Art had never previously played with any of the members of The Rhythm Section, and never would again with the exception of Paul Chambers.
