Description:

This is the moving and sobering story of a man, his music, and the life he chose to live. Art Pepper, arguably one of the finest Alto Saxophone players in Jazz's Be-bop era, spent more time in San Quentin and other penal institutions for assorted drug convictions, than he did as a free man. Later years he was able to "stay clean" with the help of methadone programs and the love and dedication of his wife, Laurie. This unique copy of his story has been signed by twenty (20) of the musicians whom he played and recorded with, on the front free end paper. Laurie Pepper has signed this copy on the title page. Signed by: Chuck Berghoffer, Carl Burnett, George Cables, Richie Cole, Tony Dumas, Peter Erskine, Chuck Flores, John Heard, Joe LaBarbera, Milcho Leviev, Bob Magnusson, Cecil McBee, Roy McCurdy, Phil Ranelin, Bud Shank, Jack Sheldon, Putter Smith, Frank Strazerri, Bill Watrous, and David Williams. A unique collection of signatures from the finest Jazz musicians of the last 65 years. Book has light toning and soiling to the page edges. Text block is clean, tight & square. BroDart protected jacket has light wear to the corners and spine ends. Ships in bubble wrap in box. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Canongate Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2000. Paperback. Condition: New. Main. Language: English . Brand New Book. Art Pepper (1925 - 1982) was described as the greatest alto-saxophonist of the post-Charlie Parker generation. But Straight Life is much more than a jazz book - it is oneof the most explosive, yet one of the most lyrical, of all autobiographies, narrated on tape to his wife Laurie. Pepper refuses to tiptoe round many of the unpalatable episodes of a life that involved alcoholism, heroin addiction,armed robberies and five of what should have been his most productive years imprisoned in San Quentin. The result is an autobiography like no other, a masterpiece of the spoken word, shaped into a genuine work of literature. Seller Inventory # AA99781841950648
