Artworks Review

by Scott Yanow

The performances on this Galaxy LP are essentially outtakes and leftovers from Art Pepper's 1979 sessions for Artists House, but the quality is quite high. "Body and Soul" and "You Go to My Head" are particularly special, for they are unaccompanied alto solos, and on "Anthropology," Pepper has a rare outing on clarinet. The remaining numbers -- "Desafinado," "Donna Lee," and "Blues for Blanche" -- feature the great altoist with pianist George Cables, bassist Charlie Haden, and drummer Billy Higgins.
