It's my happy birthday month so I've got a present for everybody. Last month (was it last month?) I gave away the Art Pepper/Hampton Hawes Surf Club "Early Show" for $4.50.* This month I've got "The Late Show." Same price. I explained that the original issuer of these discs has never paid mechanicals for the great original tunes Art played that night at the Surf Club. So here you go.
*I'd like to add that I'm hoping to get a new completely UNRELEASED Art CD out by Spring of next year, 2016. And, unless something really spectacular lands on my doorstep in the next few months, it'll be ART PEPPER & WARNE MARSH, LIVE. UNRELEASED. UNHEARD. So if you can, please support the music by paying as much as is convenient for the freebies and the cheapo tracks and albums. THANKS.
P.S. Didn't he have the prettiest tone in the whole world? Yes. He did.
released August 8, 2015
Important NOTE: You can count the number of times Art recorded "Everything Happens to Me" on the fingers of one hand. Who knows why this standard ballad wasn't standard in his repertoire. Emotionally, he OWNED this tune.
