Art For Laurie's Sake

If I should fall in love again... I'm sure it will be with Laurie Pepper, widow of Art Pepper - one of the great musicians of the last century.
Reading the album notes that Laurie penned for the recent release of previously undiscovered live Stuttgart recordings from Art's final European tour in 1981 I'm quite overwhelmed by the depth of feeling that emerges.
It is like as though a happy ending has been added to Straight Life.
Check them out here and listen to samples from the album.
Art really was the greatest and so are you Laurie for perpetuating his memory.
Lance.
