In 1959, Art Pepper entered Contemporary Record’s studios in Los Angeles to record what has become one of jazz history’s signature albums – “Art Pepper + Eleven”. One of the finest post-Parker alto saxophonists, Art was known as a journeyman multi-reedist who was reaching his first pinnacle as an artist when “Art Pepper + Eleven” was recorded.
The monumental task of arranging this bebop album fell to the capable pen of the masterful Marty Paich and featured Art playing alto and clarinet alongside such luminary jazz musicians as Bud Shank on alto sax, Richie Kamuca on tenor sax, Pete Candoli on trumpet, Jack Sheldon on trumpet and Mel Lewis on drums.
This presentation of the “Art Pepper + Eleven” book will feature Canada’s national treasure PJ Perry along with eleven of Edmonton’s and Calgary’s finest musicians. The All-Stars will also be presenting some other big band material during this event.
A big band in all but name, this concert is not to be missed!
Tickets – $24.00 for EJS members; $28.00 for non-members/guests, plus applicable fees. Members will be reimbursed at the door.
