(1982) With Laurie Pepper, Milcho Leviev, Bob Magnusson, Carl Burnett. Produced and Directed by Don McGlynn.
An intensely personal, painfully revealing portrait of one of jazz' greatest alto saxophonists -- a remarkably expressive soloist and composer who was also a drug addict, thief, prison inmate and all around wildman.
Producer/Director Don McGlynn has made more than a dozen musical documentaries since his first film in 1982: "Art Pepper: Notes from a Jazz Survivor." Since Don splits his time between Copenhagen, New York and Hollywood, we have gathered all of his films that are currently available on VHS or DVD in one place. Also listed below is a new line of audio CDs produced by Don that feature rare and previously unissued radio broadcasts by Harold Arlen and Louis Prima.
