"Une célébration d'amour et d'intégrité"
il existe un lien particulier entre une mère et sa fille. Parfois fragile et ténue, mais à la fois aussi immuable que les Rocheuses, c'est une relation qui n'est ni statique, ni superficielle. Elle se développe toujours telle une source profonde et intarissable.
Les femmes - filles, mères, épouses, travailleuses, amies, étudiantes - sont à la fois uniques et parentes entre elles. Ce lien de parenté provient des expériences semblables qu'elles vivent : l'amour et l'apprentissage; la faculté de ressentir la tendresse du coeur; l'aptitude à nouer des amitiés qui ne meurent jamais; la capacité de donner la vie; le courage d'allier travail et famille. …
The third of three volumes chronicling Pepper's complete Aladdin recordings, Blue Note's Art of Pepper, Vol. 3 finds the West Coast alto saxophonist in top form over the course of 12 stunning cuts. Recorded in 1957, the set takes in both Pepper originals ("Holiday Flight," "Surf Ride") and choice standards ("Long Ago and Faraway," "Without a Song"). There's also a fine cover of the rare Bud Powell cut "Webb City." Topped off with excellent work by pianist Carl Perkins, bassist Ben Tucker, and drummer Chuck Flores, this collection is a must-have for all Pepper fans.
One of the greatest West Coast jazz LPs of all time! Art Pepper plays beautiful spiralling alto lines with a tight quartet that includes Russ Freeman on piano, Chuck Flores on drums, and Ben Tucker on bass. The whole thing swings in a way that's tough to find on some of Pepper's other albums from the time, and the track list includes "Dianne's Dilemma", "Blues In", "Blues Out", and "Cool Bunny".
Blue Note's The Return of Art Pepper: The Complete Art Pepper Aladdin Recordings compiles the 13 final masters that the alto saxophonist recorded for Aladdin between August 1956 and January 1957. These are titled The Return of Art Pepper, since they were recorded shortly after he completed a jail sentence in 1956. As a result, Pepper's chops are a little rusty, but you can hear that he still has a passion for playing, and he does improve over the course of these tracks. For serious Pepper fans, it's worth a listen, but for less dedicated fans, there are better places to become acquainted with his work.
