Coined “a diamond of recorded jazz history” by Becky Byrkit of The All Music Guide, ‘Art Pepper Meets the Rhythm Section’ beckoned many raving responses such as “a classic east meets west, cool plus hot but never lukewarm combination” (Nastos) to “a poetic, burning date, with all four men playing above themselves….Between them, they’d delivered a masterpiece” (Morton & Cook, 2006).
