Laurie Pepper tells the story of Art Pepper's life in the space of one of his three minute solos. For me, her graphics recall the work of Bruce Conner or Stan Vanderbeek. Also, for those who haven't done so, read Art's autobiography (written with Laurie), Straight Life. It's real life jazz noir at its best. And watch out for more from Laurie Pepper.
