In celebration of its 65th anniversary, the Craft label are reissuing for the first time the rare MONO version of Art Pepper's classic 1957 album on Contemporary Records.  According to jazz lore, on the morning of January 19, 1957, esteemed alto saxophonist Art Pepper woke up to learn that he was booked for a session, just hours later, with Miles Davis’ highly respected rhythm section (pianist Red Garland, bassist Paul Chambers, and drummer Philly Joe Jones), where the landmark title, Art Pepper Meets the Rhythm Section, was recorded. Produced by Contemporary Records’ Lester Koenig and recorded by engineer Roy DuNann, Art Pepper Meets the Rhythm Section has been praised as “a diamond of recorded jazz history” by AllMusic.

Housed in a tip-on jacket, this special mono edition features all-analog mastering from the original mono tapes by Bernie Grundman and is pressed on 180-gram black vinyl at QRP.
