Arthur Edward Pepper Jr. (September 1, 1925 – June 15, 1982) was an American alto saxophonist and very occasional tenor saxophonist and clarinetist. A longtime figure in West Coast jazz, Pepper came to prominence in Stan Kenton's big band. He was known for his emotionally charged performances and several stylistic shifts throughout his career, and was described by critic Scott Yanow as "the world's great altoist" at the time of his death.
Art Pepper at the Maiden Voyage Club was more fully realized in his vision that he was four years earlier at the Village Vanguard. Pepper soars on these sides in the company of perhaps his greatest working quartet. Goin' Home (Galaxy/OJC 1982). The Complete Village Vanguard Sessions (Contemporary 1977). Art Pepper at his ragged best in 1977. With superb accompaniment by George Cables, George Mraz, and Elvin Jones, Art Pepper defined his later career with these corrosive performances.

Just when the Art Pepper enthusiast thought there was no more, Galaxy acquires all of Pepper's Atlas sides made as an ostensible sideman while under contract with Galaxy. A relaxed and brilliant Pepper, here he is not driven, only dedicated. The Complete Galaxy Recordings (Galaxy 1978).

Admittedly, this Jazz Factory double disc leaves something to be desired in the sound reproduction and mastering departments. But it is of little consequence when one considers the historical value of the performances here that showcase Art Pepper early in his solo career, with Sonny Clark on piano. The sound quality - which isn't terrible by a long shot and is not noisy, just less than sparkling - becomes no deterrent at all when one hears the illustrious communication between Pepper and Clark - making Clark seem like the bandleader, incidentally.
