Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Winter Moon is a 1981 jazz album by saxophonist Art Pepper playing with Stanley Cowell, Howard Roberts, Cecil McBee, Carl Burnett and strings arranged and conducted by Bill Holman  and Jimmy Bond.

“There are people who will try to tell you that Art Pepper’s best work was all done for Contemporary before 1960, and that his work after 1975 was an interesting but minor postscript. If they do, you need say nothing. Just play them this album. Case dismissed.” – John Eyles/AllAboutJazz.
