Altoist Art Pepper's final recordings resulted in two albums' worth of duets with pianist George Cables; the music was reissued in expanded form on Pepper's 16-CD Galaxy box set. Highlights of these relaxed but passionate encounters include "Over the Rainbow," "Body and Soul," "The Way You Look Tonight," and "You Go to My Head." Pepper never did decline on record, and although he died in June 1982 (just a month after the last of these duets), he is prime form throughout the emotional performances. ~ Scott Yanow
