Art Pepper Discography
[page last modified 06-Apr-2007]

Please note! If you have any recording or album cover with Art Pepper on it, that is not already listed here -- I want to know about it! Please send email to mikel about it. Thanks!

This is intended to be a complete list of all the Art Pepper disks. It is basically a cross-reference to the magnificent sessionography by Todd Selbert which can be found as an appendix to the Art Pepper biography "Straight Life", by Art & Laurie Pepper. It is an ongoing project -- I have most of Art's disks and will get them all typed/scanned as time permits.

Just to explain why I'm doing this -- Art's recordings have been released and re-released in uncountable versions over the years. When I'm standing there in the record store looking at some random Art Pepper disk that I've never seen before, I need to know whether or not to buy it. I go home, dig out my copy of Selbert's discog. and enter the results here.
