ART PEPPER: Neon Art – Volume Two (CD)

Neon Art: Volume Two (CD)

In 2012, Omnivore Recordings issued a series of unreleased music from jazz legend Art Pepper on colored vinyl. Now Omnivore, in conjunction with Laurie Pepper and Widow’s Taste Music, proudly offer these landmark recordings on CD and digital.

Neon Art: Volume Two includes three tunes drawn from the unissued performances of his 1981 tour of Japan. The album features Art’s composition “Mambo Koyama,” as well as his very personal and soulful rendition of the classic “Over The Rainbow” and the bebop workout “Allen’s Alley.” The band on Volume Two, which also appears on Volume Three, is composed of George Cables, piano; David Williams, bass; and Carl Burnett, drums. Volume Two hits the streets March 10.
