Originally issued as High Jingo by Lee Konitz And His West Coast Friends in 1982, this material was recorded in February of that year at Sage & Sound Studio in Los Angeles with Konitz on alto sax, Art Pepper also on alto sax (and clarinet), bassist Bob Magnusson, Michael Lang on piano, and drummer John Dentz. It was only released on LP in Japan.
Now available worldwide as Art Pepper Presents “West Coast Sessions!” Volume 3: Lee Konitz, these performances are finally available again. In addition to a pair of tracks found on the 2001 boxed set The Hollywood All-Star Sessions, this CD also contains photos and new liner notes from Laurie Pepper.
