A pretty unapologetic look at a really talented Alto Sax player. Pepper doesn't pull any punches, nor does he really know where his talent comes from. Its as if he just could play and it really didn't matter what he did with that gift. Not for the faint hearted, Pepper is pretty downright clueless and has the moral development of a teenager. His music is pretty stupendous though.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0306805588, Paperback)

Art Pepper (1925–1982) was called the greatest alto saxophonist of the post-Charlie Parker generation. But his autobiography, Straight Life, is much more than a jazz book—it is one of the most explosive, yet one of the most lyrical, of all autobiographies. This edition is updated with an extensive afterword by Laurie Pepper covering Art Pepper’s last years, and a complete and up-to-date discography by Todd Selbert.
