Gratuitous plug: I interviewed Laurie Pepper in 2007 about her Widow's Taste label on The Jazz Session. You can hear that interview here:

I'm interviewing her again next month. That interview will be up on the site later this year.

(I might also mention that the author of this blog, Marc Myers, will be on The Jazz Session in the next several weeks. Stay tuned!)

Thanks for this, Marc. Looking forward to checking this out--I have yet to hear a record of his I wasn't blown away by. For what it's worth, my personal favorite of all I've heard to date is the complete Village Vanguard set--all 9 or 10 CDs worth. Awesome playing throughout and a very tight backup band, including George Cables on piano. Well worth the time and investment.

Your readers may be glad to know they can more economically obtain the music on Angel Wings than paying $245.00 for the original '80 Japanese Atlas LP (available on All of the music from that session can be found on the 5-CD '97 Galaxy boxed set The Hollywood All-Star Sessions on CDNow (Amazon) for as little as $35.00.
