Art Pepper was a leading West Coast alto saxophonist during the 1950s before personal problems removed him from the scene off and on for years. His beautiful, distinctive tone, highly personal phrasing, and great expressiveness are on full display in Marty Paich’s fine arrangement of "Violets For Your Furs," where Pepper is the featured soloist with Paich’s 13-piece ensemble.
