Bebop Spoken There

Jennifer Wharton: "People forget that the trombone is so glorious. It can be like going to church, or getting ready for battle. It can be a lot of things....For a longtime I was the only female trombonist in New York," - (DownBeat May 2021)

Jazz Quest Radio "What Laurie [Pepper] Likes"

Listen to recordings of Art Pepper along with studio guests, Art's widow, Laurie Pepper and Belgium archivist Rocco Bertels. It's compelling listening. Both the talking and the music is great. Art's my all-time favourite alto player - maybe even my favourite jazz musician ever and it's a thrill for me to hear Laurie talking about the background to many of Art's recordings. 
Don't let the opening station identification put you off - the action begins with the classic Art Pepper Quartet recording from the 1950s of Bésame Mucho. As it happens, this was the track that first turned me on to Art Pepper (thank you, Charlie Carmichael).
Live extended versions of What Laurie Likes; Cherokee; Historia de un Amor and a studio version of I'm Getting Sentimental Over You follow. Sentimental also has Bob Cooper, Bill Watrous, Pete Jolly, Monty Budwig and Shelly Manne alongside Art making this a truly all-star West Coast line-up.
Lance.
