Description:Rare reissue on superior-sounding HQCD!
DSD remastered!

Among Friends is a very special record for many reasons. First, it was the first post-comeback record Art Pepper made after his exclusive contract with Contemporary expired. Second, for this session, Pepper chose the musicians, especially Russ Freeman who had become a studio musician and was reluctant at first but ultimately convinced by Pepper and his wife, Laurie. Third, unlike Pepper's recent Contemporary albums which emphasized original compositions, it mostly consisted of standards based on Pepper's own preference. An original blues (the title track) was added based on the request by Toshiya Taenaka, the Japanese producer of Interplay Records, and the title "Among Friends" was suggested by Laurie.

Literally surrounded by old friends (relatively new in the case of Bob Magnussen), Pepper is relaxed and inspired throughout the program, and shows his lyrical best. Newly remastered with DSD technology and pressed on superior-sounding HQCD, this reissue will be cherished by all jazz fans and treasured by fans of Art Pepper!

Recorded at United Western Studio in Hollywood on September 2, 1978. DSD remastered in 2011. Japanese, paper sleeve (mini LP) limited edition. HQCD (High Quality CD) is compatible with all regular CD players.
