Contemporary Records Acoustic Sounds Series


Featuring all-analog mastering by Bernie Grundman


Pressed at Quality Record Pressings


Stoughton Printing gatefold old-style tip-on jackets


 Craft Recordings' 70th Anniversary celebration of Contemporary Records!

Each title, originally engineered by Roy DuNann and/or Howard Holzer, features all-analog mastering from the original tapes by legendary engineer Bernie Grundman (himself a former employee of the label), as well as unsurpassed audiophile pressing on 180-gram vinyl at Quality Record Pressings, presented in a Stoughton Printing old-style tip-on jacket.

The series highlights gems from Contemporary's extraordinary catalog and features artists who both defined and expanded the sound of West Coast jazz.

Art Pepper Meets the Rhythm Section is the alto saxophone master's auspicious 1957 Contemporary debut paring him with pianist Red Garland, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Philly Joe Jones — the East Coast rhythm section for Miles Davis' nonpareil quintet. Recorded by legendary engineer Roy DuNann.

The Absolute Sound Super Disc List   TAS Harry Pearson Super LP List

.Art Pepper, alto sax; Red Garland, piano; Paul Chambers, Bass; Philly Joe Jones, drums. Album notes don't always tell the whole story. Contemporary president Les Koenig, who rightly felt that Art had yet to record with musicians who were his equal, wanted to take advantage of Miles Davis's quintet being in L.A. But Pepper hadn't been playing for several months, and his horn was in a state of disrepair.

To minimize anxiety, the session was kept secret from Art until the last minute. But Pepper always rose to a challenge: he taped to his dried-out cork, arrived for the date, and proceeded to record an album widely considered the most important of his career. This is an all tube recording from the mircophones to the tape machine..
