Complete Lighthouse Sessions est un album d'Art Pepper et de Shorty Rogers. Il n'est pas inclus dans la chronologie des albums d'Art Pepper puisqu'il ne s'agit pas d'un de ses disques en leader mais d'un concert du Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse All-Stars. Cet album contient un concert enregistré au Lighthouse d'Hermosa Beach d'Howard Rumsey. Il permet d'entendre l'ambiance qui régnait à l'époque dans ce club, le temple du Jazz West Coast où ce style était en train de se former. Au moment de cet enregistrement, Art Pepper et Shorty Rogers venaient tous les deux de quitter l'orchestre de Stan Kenton. Quelques semaines auparavant, ils avaient participé ensemble au premier disque de Shorty Rogers And His Giants, session qui définit alors en grande partie le style Jazz West Coast.

In 1979 Art Pepper was recorded at two sessions that yielded two fine albums, So In Love and The New York Album. There was more first-rate material recorded in those two sessions than would fit on two LPs so difficult choices had to be made as to what material not to include on the albums released at the time. Those choices were not necessarily made on the basis of the quality of the performances but with respect to such considerations as length and congruence of repertoire within an album.

The Shelly Manne edition of West Coast Sessions is the oldest fashion of all of the recordings. This recording has much more of a swing era flavor in the repertoire and performance when compared with the others. The inclusion of pianist Pete Jolly accentuates this swing-era element in his Oscar Peterson-styled blues playing on "Hollywood Jam Blues." Jolly's contributions are wordy and voluble, full of all order of ornate phrasing. The three horn from of Pepper, tenor saxophonist Bob Cooper and trombonist Bill Watrous adds to the swing-era environment by representing the most stripped down of big bands. All three understand the material, performing it with a late 1940s flair. "Just Friends" is given a jaunty treatment with near Dixieland counterpoint. The band sounds comfortable and relaxed.

Of the six volumes making up this set of Art Pepper recordings, this one with trumpeter/vocalist/all-around-character Jack Sheldon is my favorite. Sheldon and Pepper were fixtures on the West Coast jazz scene for many years and had previously recorded together on many occasions over 30 years, most notably on The Return of Art Pepper and Smack Up (Contemporary, 1960). They were comfortable with one another. Sheldon always understood Pepper, despite the destinations of their dramatically different career arcs.

Since the 1979 publication of Straight Life, Art Pepper's ironically titled autobiography, the late saxophonist has been as well-known for his sociopathic tendencies as for his body of creative work. Thanks to a lifelong drug addiction that he never completely put behind him, Pepper spent most of his adult life in prison. In the years before and after his various incarcerations, however, he would pick up the alto and create great jazz with an originality that placed him on a level with the music's elite. Complete 1947-1951 Small Group Studio Recordings features a relatively callow, twentysomething Pepper before his flaws brought him down, in the company of various members of the Stan Kenton band and other well-known West Coast jazz musicians of the late '40s and early '50s.

Altoist Art Pepper, in the midst of a successful comeback, recorded this excellent set (also included in full in his massive Galaxy box set) for Galaxy. With pianist Stanley Cowell, bassist Cecil McBee and drummer Roy Haynes, Pepper performs a definitive version of his intense ballad "Patricia"; other highlights include "Miss Who," "Lover Come Back to Me" and "Chris' Blues." The CD reissue also has a second alternate version of "These Foolish Things".

Despite his very erratic lifestyle, altoist Art Pepper never made a bad record. This collection is better than most. The first four titles team together Pepper with tenor saxophonist Warne Marsh, pianist Ronnie Ball, bassist Ben Tucker, and drummer Gary Frommer for generally intriguing explorations of four standards. One can feel the influence of Lennie Tristano (with Pepper in Lee Konitz's place), although Pepper had his own sound and a more hard-swinging style.

This 2012 disc gathers all known sides cut during a July 26, 1956 confab led by West Coast cool purveyors Chet Baker (trumpet) and Art Pepper (alto sax). Keen-eyed enthusiasts will note that this particular date occurred during a remarkable week – July 23 through July 31 – of sessions held at the behest of Pacific Jazz label owner and producer Dick Bock at the Forum Theater in Los Angeles. Recordings made during this week not only inform The Route, but three other long-players as well: Let's Get Lost, Chet Baker & Crew, and At the Forum Theater. These were likewise the first sides cut by Baker since returning from his triumphant and extended stay in Europe.

Lone Hill Jazz presents a package of vintage cool West Coast jazz, bringing to light 16 excellent tracks that have all but fallen through the cracks over the years. On Monday, November 26, 1956 (which just happened to be the day that Tommy Dorsey died), tenor saxophonists Ted Brown and Warne Marsh brought their working quintet into a Los Angeles recording studio to make Brown's first album as a leader, with special guest alto saxophonist Art Pepper adding his own third dimension.
