Art Pepper! He was brilliant. Read a bit about his life, especially his time in prison during the 60s (heroin junkie) and you'll be even more amazed. Sadly he died while still in his 50s..years of drug abuse will do that I guess.

[4] Really? So they were a blues label? Will investigate later for sure.

Had some Albert King on this morning, needed some "oomph" to get up and out of bed.
