art-pepperArt Pepper was a saxophonist who began his career in the late 1940s with Stan Kenton. Like many other Jazz greats he found himself addicted to heroin and was locked up several times in prison. Nonetheless, his music lived at a high level until his death in 1982, the result of a brain hemorrhage. In 1956 Intro Records released the Art Pepper album “Modern Art.” An original copy can get you $2,500.00 today.
