The Art Pepper Quintet Smack Up Vinyl LP

Art Pepper left a legacy of innumerable appearances on records, but his sessions for Contemporary always seemed to find him in the best company and in the best shape. Here his impassioned alto saxophone is appropriately applied to the compositions of six saxophonists, among them Benny Carter, Ornette Coleman, and Pepper himself. The presence of Jack Sheldon in a rare performance as a small-group trumpeter was another stimulating factor in the album's success.

Originally released in 1960 on Contemporary Records, this album was reissued in 1984 on the OJC label.
