Description:Pure Pleasure Records' vinyl reissue of a classic jazz album!
* Limited edition 180-gram vinyl
* High quality European pressing
* Audiophile mastering


"Based upon the diversity of music, quality of product and their extraordinary rate of progress, Pure Pleasure Records is our re-issue record company of the year."
- Hi-Fi+ 2005


This is the same album as the famous and highly-collectable Playboys record - the one with the pinup model on the cover. However, for legal reasons, Pure Pleasure was not allowed to use that name or cover shot for this reissue. But the music remains...

The renamed title, Picture of Heath, comes from the fact that more than half of the tracks here are Jimmy Heath compositions. These are the third sessions to feature the dynamic duo of Art Pepper (alto sax) and Chet Baker (trumpet). The supporting cast here includes Curtis Counce on bass, Phil Urso on tenor sax, Carl Perkins on piano and Larance Marable on drums. These high energy sides are perfect both for bop connoisseurs and mainstream jazz fans!

"Picture of Heath -- recorded in 1956 as Playboys, then forced into a title change (Hugh Hefner threatened to sue) -- finds Pepper teamed with trumpeter Chet Baker, and it's one of those 'West Coast' jazz recordings that you sit back and let hit you like an ocean wave; up-tempo, fleet-fingered, straight-ahead, and swinging-till-you-drop. The artists make an appealing pair. Baker blows his trumpet with a piercing zest that will startle those who know only his warmed-over Miles-styled balladry. Pepper drapes a smooth, gorgeous tone over a jagged cadence and rhythm -- holding a note for a bit too long, then jumping and zigzagging to catch up -- and the tension practically crackles."
- Fred Kaplan, The Absolute Sound, March 2006

"…Pepper and Baker are at their best, alto sax and trumpet tightly knit in the cool-bop ensembles and offering urgent, well-argued solo... [T]he Pure Pleasure vinyl treatment could make this one another audiophile classic."
- Steve Harris, Hi-Fi News, June 2006

Recorded October 31, 1956. Mono. This vinyl reissue released by Pure Pleasure Records (United Kingdom).
