Laurie Pepper is back on the show to talk about the 11th volume in her Unreleased Art Pepper series. This one features a 1980 concert in Atlanta. In this interview, Pepper talks about how the concert came to be recorded; the work she continues to do on the extensive library of Art Pepper recordings she owns; the audiobook version of the classic jazz biography Straight Life; and much more. Listen to Laurie’s previous appearances on The Jazz Session here and here.
