Every Note and Every Piece of Dialogue Captured Over Acclaimed Two-Night Live Recording Session

Art Pepper's booked appearances at Ronnie Scott's during the last two weeks of June 1980 with his accompanying trio was a smash success from the very beginning. Word soon spread amongst the London jazz fraternity, and arrangements were made to record the quartet before the Ronnie Scott's booking ended. As it happened, the recording was commissioned by Mole Jazz, a record shop in King's Cross, London. Mole came into being when three dedicated jazz enthusiasts, Ed Dipple, Pete Fincham and Graham Griffiths, decided to establish a shop designed solely for selling jazz records, new and second-hand. The Art Pepper recordings represented Mole's first release, which became Blues for the Fisherman. A second album from these recordings, True Blues was released the following year.

For many years, the two Mole albums have been unavailable to collectors. But now, for the first time ever, the entire recordings made on the two nights at Ronnie's are presented on this deluxe set, amounting to a total of 25 performances complete with dialogues by Art Pepper between several of the tunes.

Fortuitously, Laurie Pepper, Art's widow, was in possession of the original master tapes. She had never played them and was shocked to disover they contained nearly five hours of music and dialogues. The tapes were then made available to Pure Pleasure and skillfully edited and mastered by Ray Staff to produce seven vinyl albums containing the original eight tracks from the two Mole LPs and an extra seventeen performances never previously available. Jazz heaven.
